Couple of thoughts to make it easier for you next time....
1) Try to get used to yum or apt-get. I am using yum at the moment, and once I modified my yum.conf file to include some other repo's, all I had to do was a "yum install xine". Admittedly, my repo did not have a couple of additional rpm's listed as dependencies, so I needed to additionally do a "yum install libdvdcss".
2) But even if you would rather go through manual dependency h-e-double-hockey-sticks, simply download all the rpm's you think you need into one directory, from one repository site. Then do a "rpm -Uvh *.rpm" from that directory. The "shell expansion" will initially have the rpm's in alphabetical order, but the "preflight check" of rpm will re-order them automagically based on the dependencies..... Seems easier than your script. Also by using the -v switch you will see the order that they are installed in.
HTH in the future,
