Another idea (sorry, should have gone to the list in the first place):

RPM does not install packages twice. It may be easiest for you just to
have a directory in which you copy all the packages that have to be
installed on a machine, and

    "/bin/rpm -Uhv /PCgsts001/pc/software/linux/*.rpm"

does this for you. With this you can even upgrade packages without
editing your cfengine files just by copying it into this directory. You
only have to keep attention that there is only one version of a package
in this directory and that the dependencies are satisfied (maybe a
--nodeps in the command line may help).
