Those package names do not match up with the names in Fedora / Red Hat /
CentOS land ... they are the names of the RPMs from mysql.

Change the build requirement to:

BuildRequires:  mysql-devel

I assume that you want to run a postfix that is newer than the one in
CentOS (the one from upstream) or that you would not be doing this ...
BUT ... if you are only looking for mysql support, then you can just
grab the latest CentOS SRPM and change the configure section of the SRPM
to add mysql support.

You will be on your own to figure out any other dependencies though,
like sasl, etc. if you get the packages from upstream.
