from the command line, you could do something like

rpm2cpio packagename.rpm | cpio -i --make-directories file_you're_looking_for

if the file is in the rpm as /usr/X11R6/lib/whatever, that directory structure
will be created in the current directory, and the file will be extracted
there. I don't know if there's a way to force it to extract to the current
directory, I don't use it very often
