There is some misunderstanding with regard to those automatic deps.

1.) Automatic Provides  pkgconfig(foo)  are in the packages for a longer
time already. Just examine old builds to see. If any Provides is missing
nevertheless, a rebuild may fix it, though.

2.) Only builds with a sufficiently recent RPM add the automatic
RPM _Requires_ (!) for any pkgconfig Requires found in a .pc file in
a package. For most packages, the maintainers has added Requires for
all needed -devel packages before, however.

3.) Rebuilding existing packages in Rawhide only breaks something,
if a Requires pkgconfig(foo) is added automatically without any
package being the provider.

Case 3) does not apply to your package. Its dependencies resolve fine
in mock/yum. The build fails at compile-time, because dbus-devel
is missing. gconf2-devel should have added "Requires: dbus-devel"
much earlier or now be rebuilt to add the automatic Requires for
an automatic pkgconfig(dbus-1) dependency.
