Aside from apt for RedHat, rpmfind also handles dependancies (but requires
some kicking to make it work intuitively), and up2date (the redhat network
tool) handles dependancies. Contrary to persistent rumours that the next
release of redhat will use apt (this rumour has been around since at least
RH6.x), the next release of /rpm/ will, as I understand it, install the
necessary prerequisites for a given package. Currently, rpm /does/ handle
dependencies, it just doesn't do anything other than tell you about them
if they're missing.
