Question failed dependency while trying to install gtk2-2.2.2-2.0

I was trying to install gtk2-2.2.2-2.0.i386.rpm on my redhat 8 and I get the following error message:

warning: gtk2-2.2.2-2.0.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 897da07a
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by gtk2-2.2.2-2.0

But I did a search for and it was there in /usr/X11R6/lib/.I upgraded my Xfree86 to version 4.3 recently which actualy provides the file.So why is the file not being detected when I try to install the rpm? and whats the warning about? Can I somehow use any option in rpm command to specify where it is located?
