Although I love apt for its powerful configuration, I have to admit that
'apt-get build-dep' is not very usefully in the rpm-world:

* it detects only the requirements which were used to build the src.rpm,
  but not the deps which will be required

* extending functionality is a non-trivial task, as the dep-resolving
  should happen as non-root while the final package removal/installation
  must happen as root
