I would avoid it. I've had troubles with that in the past. (Don't ask for details - it's been long ago, around version 0.88, and I didn't keep records.)

Just ask RPM:
% rpm -qf /path/to/some/file
will tell you whether that file was installed by RPM and if so, which package it belongs to. For example:
[ts@gimli ~]$ rpm -qf /usr/local/bin/clamscan file /usr/local/bin/clamscan is not owned by any package [ts@gimli ~]$ rpm -qf /usr/sbin/sendmail sendmail-8.13.8-2.el5
shows that ClamAV was installed from source on that machine, while Sendmail came from the EL5 package.
