can't build anything locally in mock on FC4

Hi folks,

I'm trying to review the torque package and mock builds have been
routinely failing for me.  I'm running FC4 on i383.  If I look in the
logs, I see:

$ more /var/lib/mock/fedora-4-i386-core/result/mockconfig.log

...lots 'o stuff snipped...

Executing /usr/sbin/mock-helper yum
--installroot /var/lib/mock/fedora-4-i386-core/root groupinstall build [Errno 4] Socket Error: timed out
Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: repodata/primary.xml.gz from core: [Errno 256] No more
mirrors to try.
Cleaning up...
Executing /usr/sbin/mock-helper
umount /var/lib/mock/fedora-4-i386-core/root/proc
Executing /usr/sbin/mock-helper
umount /var/lib/mock/fedora-4-i386-core/root/dev/pts

Is there something I can do locally to fix this?  The local mock builds
have always been slow for me but this is really frustrating...
