Did the chroot environment start empty and only have the minimum
requirements copied in for each package, or was it re-used from build to build
or do you remember?

AFAIK the buildroot that the internal autobuild set up was always a
fresh one. If you use the build script for a local build, it will
reuse installed packages as long as they are needed for the next
package and you don't explicitly request a clean build root by passing
--clean. BTW, that parameter is still valid for 'osc build'.

'osc build' calls 'build' which calls 'rpmbuild'. And YES, build
checks first for any packages not _required_ for the current build
(and uninstalls any unneeded stuff), and installs any missing stuff.

HTH,
