I'd suggest repoquery or "yum whatprovides" e.g.:

$ repoquery --whatprovides '*/fsck.xfs'
xfsprogs-0:2.9.7-1.fc9.i386

or

$ yum whatprovides '*/fsck.xfs'
...
xfsprogs-2.9.7-1.fc9.i386 : Utilities for managing the XFS filesystem
Matched from:
Filename    : /sbin/fsck.xfs

The presence of the '/' in the query string lets yum and repoquery
know to look in file lists for packages that provide a match.
