It's certainly nontrivial.  You not only have to check that some
package owns each of the directories which would be created by package
installation which are not actually owned by the package in question,
but you also have to make sure that the owner of the file is in the
dependency footprint of the package.


So, what about doing that in the mock chroot after the build?

There are ongoing discussion (on fedora-buildsys-list) about adding an
(optional) rpmlint step to mock: that seems to be the proper place for
checks like this.
