the command should be  
config_opts['chroot_setup_cmd'] = 'groupinstall buildsys-build'

I dont know that the group is in RHEL's comps.  if its not ill push that it 
does get added.  if Red Hat refuses to then it will be added to epel's comps 
file.  either way when epel is ready there will be a group to install and not 
the old hacks.  redhat-release does set the correct macros to meet fedora's 
packaging guidelines.
