If its an RPM for another distro you'd almost certainly have to do an 
rpm --nodeps glibc.xxx.rpm to get it installed as it will probably 
depend on the packages and versions of packages in that other distro.

Of course this is a very, very hacky solution - use at your own risk and 
only on a non-production box :)
