rpm is a low-level program for working with individual packages; the Gentoo equivalent of that is ebuild. By contrast, emerge is the high-level package manager which will install all your needed dependencies etc. In the RPM universe, that role is handled by yum and apt-rpm.

The question is, does yum allow you to install some packages into a different root? (I don't run Fedora, so I have no idea.)

using yum to build a chroot

Yum does support installing into a different root directory.

$ yum --help | grep root
--installroot=[path] set install root

There is another tool "mock" that builds rpms which uses yum to create a clean chroot with only the required build dependencies for each package build.

using urpmi to build a chroot

urpmi too:

[root@wulfgar zerodogg]# LC_ALL=C urpmi --help |grep root
--root - use another root for rpm installation.
