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.
