Please note that rdepends will include more than just strict dependencies;
it will also include suggested, recommended, replacing, and conflicting.

What kind of dependencies?
For regular dependencies (and recommends and suggests):
apt-cache depends <package>
For build dependencies:
apt-get build-dep <package>
For reverse dependencies (list of what depends on it):
apt-cache rdepends <package>
And then there are other nice things like:
aptitude why <package>
aptitude why-not <package>
Which tell you why apt wants to pull in a package (what depends on it
that you're installing?) or get rid of it (what are you installing that
conflicts with it?).
