there is ldd to check binaries --- very easy to use:

<tt>ldd /usr/bin/gimp</tt>

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"
