Actually, this was the change that was made. Old way: "rebuild", new
way: "--rebuild". I've tried to keep backwards compatibility for people
using the old method and dont intend to drop that.

It would be easier to debug given the actual error output.

New mock provides "mock --install REPOPKG" if you want to install an RPM
from one of the configured repos.

you can pass it in the .rpmmacros file by editing the mock config file.
Look in /etc/mock/defaults.cfg for information, see the
config_opts['macros'] line.

You can put this directive in the chroot config file or the defaults.cfg
file.
