Depending on what you are actually trying to do it might be easier to
just create a database on your own. Probably using the rpm version
compare function as stored procedure.
If you really what to use a rpmdb have a look at the --justdb and
--dbpath/--root cli parameters. You still need to create real packages
to be able to install them into the data base. But just creating a
simple spec file and building it on the fly shouldn't be too hard. Just
creating the headers and installing them into the database might also be
possible, but I have doubts that the Python API is really complete and
tested well enough to make that work easily.
