But the doc at that place doesn't mention "make mockbuild", but mentions
"make i386, make x86_64, or make ppc" instead ;-)

BTW: when jeremy in the doc mentioned to build stuff from both the devel
and the F-7 branch locally he afaics meant to do that when the spec
files in both branches differ. Otherwise there really is no point in
rebuilding them locally without mock or different installs afaics.

thl (who does a local mock build only for new packages before submitting
them for review)
