If you are sure the dependencies are in place you can install with --nodeps
in your rpm command syntax

(the U assumes you are upgrading)

rpm -ivh mypackage-1.0.0.rpm --nodeps

You may need to rebuild the rpm database if you're having issues with it
telling you that packages you know are installed aren't:

rpm --rebuilddb
