I think this affects F-7 mock builds as well.

buildsys-build-0.8-1.fc7[1] doesn't require diffutils, nor does

BTw, where is the current srpm or spec file for buildsys-build kept?
I can find older versions in mock's git repo, but not the 0.8 spec or
srpm.  (I'm probably missing it somewhere obvious [though the most
obvious place would be right beside the rpm]. :)
