To see if your rpm supports rich deps check the "rpm --showrc" output
(check the "Features supported by rpmlib" section) or you could do it
programmatically, for instance, via rpm-python

from __future__ import print_function

import rpm

def has_richdep_support():
    dep = rpm.dsSingle(rpm.RPMTAG_PROVIDENAME, 'rpmlib(RichDependencies)')
    rpmlib_ds = rpm.ds.Rpmlib()
    return rpmlib_ds.Search(dep) != -1

print('has rich dep support:', has_richdep_support())

(I haven't found a way to query it directly via "rpm ...", though)
