The file in base/ is not used anymore.  A comps file is still needed when you 
do createrepo, but that comps file can live in any location, even outside the 
tree.  Createrepo makes a copy of it in the repodata/ directory in the tree 
and that is what is used by everything.

Change the -g call to a place where you have the comps file you wish to use.

pkgorder is only necessary if you're going to split up the tree onto more than 
one CD/DVD.

--pkgorder is not necessary for buildinstall calls.

Again, call -g with another location.

If you're recreating Fedora trees, have you looked at the pungi software?
