More generally, use this to find dependencies, not just files. For
example, openssh-server requires "libcrypto.so.2", but doesn't give the
full path. You could ask:

$ rpm --redhatprovides libcrypto.so.2

to find that openssl-0.9.6b-8 is the package which provides
libcrypto.so.2.

Incidentally, the way --redhatprovides works is damned sneaky. Check out
/usr/lib/rpm/rpmpopt-4.0.4.
