-ivh" does.
I'll point out that yum can do that, too.

e.g. "yum localinstall httpd<tab>" would install that local file, and
should pull in any dependencies, automatically.

That works only if a yum repository contains the dependency. In this
instance the packages are not in a repository but were downloaded into
a local directory.

guys, don't argue. The takehome message is that both yum and smart have an advantage over "rpm -ivh" :)

But I like smart more, it is faster on my machine.

I'm running F9 x86_64 and F8 i386 on x86_64 hardware, should this matter.
