dependency - /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth ??

Hi everybody,
I am trying to install XFree86 on RHL 9.0.

When I do a -

rpm -Uvh XFree86.x.x.x-y

it gives me the following four dependencies -

/usr/X11R6/bin/xauth is needed by XFree86-4.3.0-2
Glide3 >= 20010520 is needed by XFree86-4.3.0-2
XFree86-base-fonts = 4.3.0 is needed by XFree86-4.3.0-2
xinitrc is needed by XFree86-4.3.0-2

I have downloaded all the four rpms.
However my question is - will the

xauth module install itself in the /usr/X11R6/bin directory or can I just do a -

rpm -Uvh file1.rpm file2.rpm file3.rpm file4.rpm

for the above four files and xauth will be automatically installed in the respective directory?

Thank you.

Yes the rpms will be automatically installed in their respective locations. if you run a search (find / -name filename) and find that all these files are already present then you can directly install XFree86.x.x.x-y with --nodeps option(rpm -ivh XFree86.x.x.x-y --nodeps).
All the best.
