There is a utility named "pin" that does just that. On my 9.3 system I get:
<quote>
vankan@pavilion:~> pin g77

grepping /var/lib/pin/ARCHIVES.gz ... please wait

pin 0.30 - package info for g77

------------------------------------------------------------------
*** no rpm named g77 installed
------------------------------------------------------------------

maybe just a typo? what about this:

gcc-g77-3.3.5-5

maybe better restart with another option? grepping anyway ...


------------------------------------------------------------------
*** zgrep g77 /var/lib/pin/ARCHIVES.gz
------------------------------------------------------------------

---> ./DVD1/suse/i586/gcc-g77-3.3.5-5.i586.rpm
---> ./DVD1/suse/x86_64/gcc-g77-32bit-9.3-7.x86_64.rpm
---> ./DVD1/suse/x86_64/gcc-g77-3.3.5-5.x86_64.rpm
