A rpm -qa will only query currently installed packages, it also only
lists the package name, not the contents of the packages. The contents
could be viewed with a rpm -ql <package>

That file is part of the compat.rpm package. The utility I used was a
set of routines written by Volker Kuhlmann called susegrep which you can
get from the following page
http://volker.orcon.net.nz/soft/script/susegrep

Another way to accomplish this would be to mount the CD or DVD and scan
each of the files listed within the /cdrom/full-names/i386 for the needed
file.
Hope some of this helps.
