Well you can try the kludgy way. :))
I haven't played with rpm's since my 2 month stint with redhat a few
years ago but if it isn't interactive then this might be a very nasty
for i in ./*; do rpm -Uhv $i; done 2>&1 | tee /tmp/foo
then run it over and over again until you either see no dependancy
warnings, only looped dependancy warnings or dependancies which are not
met by the stuff in that directory.
It's nasty but it -might- work or at least make your life a wee bit
