the rpm command is NOT an equal of apt, dselect / dpkg is equivalent to rpm, apt-get is equivalent to yum. these tools are wrappers around the base package management tools, which do all this fluffier stuff for you.

In actual fact, rpm DOES do this, with the --aid command, but not in the way I expect you want to see it work.
