there is ldd to check binaries --- very easy to use:
and to find out, what package owns a file this binary depends on you ask pacman:
<tt>[damir@Asteraceae ~]$ pacman -Qo /lib/tls/libc.so.6<br/>
/lib/tls/libc.so.6 is owned by glibc 2.3.4-2 </tt>
... and namcap to check packages on dependencies --- also very easy to use against PKGBUILD's or pkg.tar.gz
... but the important thing is: for the packages in the repositories in most cases you don't need ABS and manipulation and don't need to care about dependences in detail! simply <tt>pacman -S whatever</tt> and start using it.
