All these libraries are provided by your operating system (your Linux
In theory, the "workbench" RPM package could list the RPM packages with
these libraries as prerequisites, but in practice this isn't possible
because different distributions (as we are dealing with RPMs: SuSE,
RedHat, ...) may (and will) use different package names, so the generic
workbench RPM cannot list what is needed.

Running RHEL 5, you should use the RedHat software management tool to
find the packages that contain these libraries; none of these is
provided by MySQL.
