In order to satisfy these deps you have to install binary versions of these libs. The source (.src.rpm) won't do no good at it, unless you compile it.
I guess the cambuca site has this deps in some package. If they don't, search rpm.pbone.net.

Are you using a RPM-based distro such as mandrake or fedora? Or a roll-your-own distro such as slack?

As you're on RH9, I'd recommend installing YUM: http://linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/ and use that to install/update stuff, as it automatically resolves dependencies.
Obviously you install and run it as root.

you should try building the *.src.rom file by giving th following command,
rpmbuild --rebuild <.src.rpm file>
then try installing it with the no dependencies option as,
rpm -ivh --nodeps <rpm file>
this might work.
2nd method:
if you find a .spec file in some folders in /usr/src/redhat/ try editing it according to your machine and then give this command to build it,
rpm -ba <rpm file>
then install with the normal install command.

but first i think you have to erase the existing software.try this one.
rpm -evh <package name>
