Nothing beyond code in "fedora" cvs:

If you query your binary rpm like

  rpm --query --requires --package foo-1.0-1.i386.rpm

you get a list of what things your package depends on (library SONAMEs,
other packages' names, interpreter programs, e.g.). If anything of that is
not provided by any package in the repository, the report lists what is
missing:

    blender-2.42a-5.fc7.i386  requires  libgettextlib-0.15.so

means "blender" is broken because no package provides the needed
"libgettextlib-0.15.so".
