In the RPM database it looks for something providing "perl(Tie::IxHash)".
So you should not install these things "manually" as RPM won't see them.

Did you try

yum install /opt/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/dba-mysql-1.0.0-1.x86_64.rpm

as Fedora for example includes a perl-Tie-TxHash package providing
"perl(Tie::IxHash)" (you should remove your manually installed Perl
modules first then).
