Once you installed enough to get yum running after chroot then you could
have use that to install the rest. yum does resolve dependencies and it
will run with a URL of 'file://' kind in its configuration where a
content of that URL is an absolute path to a directory where your
'headers' are (and you can recreate that information at any moment with
a help of yum-arch).

The above would save you quite a bit of time. 'anaconda' actually
installs using '--nodeps'. A version of rpm used in Fedora has also an
'--aid' option but that requires that 'rpmdb' package is installed.
