I can confirm that EPrints will work quite happily with a PostgreSQL 
database.... though you definitely need a MySQL instance to actually 
install the app from source.

However the original posters question was about the VERSION of MySQL - 
and eprints doesn't do anything platform-specific.... so unless 
different versions of MySQL don't support some part of the SQL Standard, 
version won't matter.
