These error messages don't mean that it can't find the libraries but that it needs to have those rpms installed; the rpm when it tries to install itself checks the rpm-database for existence of necessary rpms, and if it doesn't see that, it doesn't attempt the install.   Even if you have those libraries installed like from tarball, it will refuse to build.  There are some rpm options like --force which will build without the dependent rpms being there, and it will succeed, if the libraries on there in an available place.   Or, you could install those libraries from rpms.
