What's wrong with calling rpm -qa | sort (usually a less is also required as the list is really way too long).
Mostly that tsort (topological sort) bears pretty much no relation
to an alphabetical sort.
WIth rpm-5.0 (and implemented several years ago, perhaps 4.4.3 I forget),there is a -T option that will emit topologically sorted queries for several
forms of queries, certainly for rpm -qpT *.rpm.
