If you are having trouble figuring out the dependencies for a group of 
packages, you can try something like this:

cd /dir/containing/all/of/your/packages/*.rpm
mkdir /tmp/testdb
rpm --initdb --dbpath /tmp/testdb
rpm --test --dbpath /tmp/testdb -Uvh *.rpm

This will run rpm in test mode using an empty database. Any unmet 
dependencies will be reported, nothing will be installed. Just keep 
adding packages to your .rpm directory and running the test again until 
rpm stops complaining. This is how I determine the slinky file lists.
