Does apt-get has any dependencies

I use mandrake and suse they both use yast and urpmi package managers, my question focus on the use of ubuntu and other deb-like packages.

I wonder if apt-get has any dependencies and how do you go about installing them.

it IS possible to get apt to work on a rpm based machine
its apt and dpkg (install dpkg first)
and apt doesn't have an install so you do all it's parts by hand

you have to look at Linux From Scratch/hints for exact details
you will never get it to work on your own.
