the reason for buildsys-build was not just the macros in buildsys-macros 
(which probably included in rhel-6), but also to require basic packages 
which is still needed. so imho another buildsys-build packages for 
epel-6 also needed in order to be able to write in epel-6-*.cfg:
config_opts['chroot_setup_cmd'] = 'install buildsys-build'
or something like that (or a long install line:-().
