Thanks to all who offered your solutions. Fortunately, they converged on
one (rpm -Uvh ...), and it ran just fine. I followed Paul's advice and
put the four rpms on one line for this.
A couple of fillips to the end game: rpm has a fail safe: I had forgotten
to backup my swat control file; rpm, rather than blithely overwriting it,
simply created swat.rpmnew instead. I had only to copy that into the
original swat control file. Then, however, to get SWAT to run (I was
getting a connection refused to localhost:901 error), I had to change
"disable = yes" to "disable = no".
