rpmgraph shows you the runtime dependencies that are in the rpm. Notably, 
rpmbuild does not figure out shell script dependencies, so that is missing. 
(But it could with a little work by scanning installed packages for shell 
scripts and running bash --rpm-requires $TARGET).

I also wrote a utility for the rookery build system that captures the build 
time dependencies suitable for graphing which is a little different than 
runtime. This was to allow analysis of code or subsystem changes to see what 
might be affected.
