OK, I understand that this might be useful in some cases but does that
mean that every package depending on postgres needs to make the
required version explicit, so should I replace the requires:
postgresql-devel by requires: postgresql92-devel (or even provide
different versions with something like your checkin script)? This
seems to me like a little overkill because it would essentially
duplicate every package depending on postgres. And why does the
dependency checker only fail in the 64bit case?

You could use a "Prefer" setting, which selects the desired version of Postgres.
