pmacct package proposal

Hi all,

I would like to offer to supply and maintain an RPM package for pmacct in 
Fedora and EPEL.

I found an old package in OpenSuSE 
I have updated it to the latest release of pmacct and removed sqlite 
support which I consider useless, as the database must be multi-user for 
sensible applications of pmacct.

My new package builds, but cannot be installed due to a dependency 
problem. The original package depends on mysql-shared, but I think this is 
called just "mysql" in redhat-ish distros. I tried the following macro:

%if 0%{?fedora} || 0%{?rhel_version} || 0%{?centos_version}
Requires: mysql postgresql-libs
Requires: mysql-shared postgresql-libs

but it doesn't appear to work. Can anyone advise me?

Assuming that I can solve this issue, please let me know how I may proceed 
with getting this package into Fedora and EPEL.

Cheers, Chris.
