Sure, with repoquery you can query pretty simple, what package owns a
file with: 'repoquery -f $FILE'

All other commands from repoquery are about dependency searching:
- repoquery --whatrequires $PACKAGE: which packages require the package
- repoquery --requires $PACKAGE: what a package requires itself

Another usefull command would be 'yum provides $FILE'. It basically does
the same like repoquery -f, but also shows more details and not just the
package name.

You see the difference with:
'repoquery -f */system-config-selinux'
'yum provides */system-config-selinux'

Both query for a file */system-config-selinux no matter where installed,
if you want to be more specific you can do a:
'yum provides /usr/bin/system-config-selinux'

Also see 'man repoquery' for more details.
