Why?? Since you're using RHEL, you can type in "yum update net-snmp", and it'll install the latest version with all the dependencies.

Right. Because, since you copied packages from one version of RHEL to another, you also have to install ALL THE DEPENDENCIES. So, copy them over, one by one, and install them (AND their dependencies), one by one. That's the only way to do it manually, and is VERY obvious from the errors that you're getting, that clearly tell you that you have missing dependencies. Using yum to install is the preferred way to do it, since it resolves all of that. Also, read the man page on the rpm command, and pay particular attention to the "--no-deps" flag.

Exactly what TB0ne said; use yum not rpm.
FYI, RHEL is on v5.9 now; ideally you'd just update everything if possible.
