I am running PCLinuxOS and ran across the same dependency requests. How I ended up resolving this issue on my machine was by way of '7-zip' (running under wine). I extracted the contents of the rpm in question (the one which gave the deps error) with 7-zip. The rpm's directory structure was retained. I simply went through 'manually' installing all included files to their proper places within the directories. I then had to check that the excutables that were placed within the bin folder were marked as 'executable' within the file's property dialog.
Hopefully this will resolve your problem. The only files within the rpm that did not fully deflate from lzma were the files that went in the man1 dir. No problem though once these were individually deflated before they were put to rest in their proper dirs.
This is an old post, though one which still comes up when searching for a solution to this problem, which is why I went ahead and posted this reply here.
