An installed library that has no installed packages depending on it is referred to as orphaned. One of the tools used to determine which libraries are orphaned on a Debian system is named deborphan. What is the Fedora equivalent?

Since this question is not really to do with Debian (merely using it as an illustration), would you kindly remove the 'debian' tag? –  jmtd Jan 24 '11 at 13:44

It appears that package-cleanup can perform a similar task with the following command:

$ package-cleanup --leaves

or, to include more than just libraries

$ package-cleanup --leaves --all

package-cleanup is in yum-utils package, which is available for installation via the Fedora repositories.
