no.  rpm installed packages have to be listed in the system catalogs so 
package management can keep track of them.   have your system manager 
install them, or build your own from tarballs specifying to install in 
your home dir (typically a --prefix= option on ./configure, but that 
heavily depends on the package and how its built).
