I believe RHEL/CentOS or EPEL already contain all the dependencies for the 
mailscanner rpm (as shipped from so you probably just 
need to provide the mailscanner rpm. I imagine Fedora is the same.

As others have said I don't think Fedora is a good platform to use 
mailscanner on in production, though it is probably okay as a testbed (it 
might for example be useful for working out what issues RHEL/CentOS 7 
might have with mailscanner).
