  You'll have to re-build the packages.

  I don't know enough about RPM packaging to know if we can update the packages to say "accept any one of these DB dependencies".

  I suspect not.  The MariaDB packages (headers, libraries, functions, definitions, etc.) would have to be 100% compatible with MySQL.  I think that they mostly are, but I haven't looked in enough detail to know for sure.
