this just means that the RPMs containing those files are not installed...
it actually has nothing to do w/ whether those files exist anywhere; it just
looks in the rpm database to see if they are registered...

try doing an 'rpm -Uvh <filename> --no-deps' and see if that works... if it
does not, add a '--force' to that...  it should install then and if the
versions of the libs you installed in /usr/local are the same as what the
rpm is looking for, it should work.  if not, i'd suggest uninstalling the
ones in /usr/local and using rpms to install those instead... OR install
gtkam from source
