OK, but that's only half the story, what about

%{!?python_sitearch:%global python_sitearch %(%{__python} -c "from distutils.sysconfig import get_python_lib; print get_python_lib(1)")}

which is not defined and needed. And for anything that will require a
call to perl/python/ruby etc. to determine some parameters. It looks
like koji expands the specfile macros before it pulls in the
dependencies, so if it isn't in the minimal buildroot you can't use
something in %().

Hm, not really comforting though that two basic building blocks don't
communicate better. Sounds like mock needs an option like
