There's no equivalent API for what "rpm -V" does, no (it's been on
TODO-lists for a while, just hasn't gotten done). Most of it can be done
"manually" by looking at rpm.fi contents (this is what yum does, see
but %verifyscript gets a good deal trickier. Parsing "rpm -V <package>"
output is probably easiest for now.
