Trying to install mtv- on redhat 9

I changed directory to where is the rpm file and then rpm -i mtv-
-> error: Failed dependencies: is needed by mtv-
So I downloaded that I put in the same directory.
I created a few symbolic links to in /usr/X11R6/lib , /usr/lib, and /lib and tried again. That didn't work. I copied in /etc/ the name of the directory of mtv-, executed ldconfig and tried again, that doesn't work.
I added to LD_LIBRARY_PATH the name of the directories where is the file and the symbolic links, without success.
I used strace to guess what was the full name of the file rpm tried to open, to know the place where rpm expects to find, but I can't find it in the strace output file.
Well, , now I don't know really what to do ?
The only idea that I still have is to find the sources of rpm program, compile it with symbols for gdb and run the command " rpm -i mtv- within gdb and find where it blocks.
Someone has certainly the simple, quick and elegant clue to my problem, no ?

when you say you downloaded, do you mean you just went and download that specific file, or did you download and install the xforms-0.88 package ?

Actually, I just downloaded the library on its own.
Should I have installed the package xforms-0.88 ?
I'll have a try in a few minutes, thanks for the hint
