rpm -Uh elfutils-*.rpm

would also work.

rpm looks at the complete requested transaction. So -Uh *.rpm would see
that the older devel package is being replaced by new one to satisfy
static dependency and that static is being installed to satisfy new
devel dependency.

yum localisntall elfutils-*.rpm

would also work, but he doesn't want to yum for whatever his reasons.
