same for me.
I'm just working on a 1.1.0 RPM.

The BuildRequires tag is an automatically created list of packages.
It's built based on a minimal base system + the definitions you can see
in # neededforbuild.
I guess the version in CVS is based on SUSE Linux 10.0 or so and so not
all packages (with the same name) are available on SLES9.
So the list you see defines the complete Linux system on which the
package would be built in our environment.
And mysql _and_ postgresql is needed to build both modules.

mysql-devel is not installed?
