The builders are running RHEL 5.4, doing any kind of mount is not permitted during the build. network access is not allowed also. You will likely have weird incompatability issues if we do allow it. since the build hosts run EL-5 and the chroot could be something wildly different. its not a tested or supported thing. for one mock chroot only has a minimal /dev file system its not likely going to be something we will work on or allow, the same as calling rpm in the chroot is not allowed.
