resolving circular dependencies on Linux


chkfontpath and xorg-x11-xfs have circular dependencies for each other.

What are all the ways to resolve the above (see issue below) ?

ls -l *chk*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 14852 May 16 11:31 chkfontpath-1.10.1-1.1.i386.rpm

ls -l *xfs*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 70384 May 16 11:33 xorg-x11-xfs-1.0.2-5.el5_6.1.i386.rpm
