That can be patched around (and collections used 
https://pypi.python.org/pypi/backport_collections/). So, I am 
still not giving up.

What's the deal with Mako? 

    -- Looking for Mako >= 0.7.3
    CMake Error at cmake/Modules/PiglitFindMako.cmake:73 (message):
        Found Mako 0.3.4, but Mako >= 0.7.3 is required
        Hint: Try installing Mako with `pip install --user --upgrade Mako`

    Call Stack (most recent call first):
      CMakeLists.txt:207 (include)

What kind of functionality is backed by Mako? Could it be switched off? (or we can build new Mako 1.0.0 in EPEL-6 http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=8711312).
