I have an issue. Trying to build a package in mock, package B. Package
B requires a installed package, package A.
Package A installs on a custom PATH and requires the PATH to be set in
order for package B to compile.

I tried adding config_opts['environment']['PATH'] =
'/bin:/blabla:....' to /etc/mock/site-defaults.cfg.
The path works when i use mock --shell.

But when I do a mock --no-clean package.B.src.rpm, the path is
missing, and the build fails.

Is there a way to set the PATH so that it is used during the
"--rebuild" process?
I'm running mock 1.1.18.

Google a recent solution on how to set LD_PRELOAD environment in mock chroot. You could probably use a similar trick to set the PATH.

It worked. And it's probably worth repeating

Added this to site-defaults.cfg:
config_opts['files']['etc/profile.d/mystuff.sh'] = """
export PATH=$PATH:/custom/path

Thanks Gordan
