The build process wants QEMU so its a BR. There is no dependancy hell
here unless you're using the wrong tools. mock trivially pull in the 
chain of deps as needed during build, so there's nothing to 'clean up'.

Just add the 'Group' field to the spec in EPEL branch of CVS.

That will only be created if it doesn't exist, so it will not impact
things unless you have created another network with a clashing IP
address range, which is trivially avoidable.
