You need to get the two rpm's installed, so that the rpm database know
about them.
When you try to install the qmail rpm, it checks the rpm database for
those two packages.

On SuSE you have a very nice utility called 'checkinstall' that will
make an rpm from your source tarball.  I don't know if Mandrake have a
similar tool.

You can look for the required rpm's at http://www.rpmfind.net

Or get teh source of qmail in compile it
