Why not do the following:

rpm -q --requires samba-2.2.7a-2mdk.src.rpm

or better still

history | grep rpm 

and see what you installed?

Actually, this is probably a better idea:
rpm -qa --queryformat "%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE} %{INSTALLTIME}\n" | sort +1 -n | perl -p -i -e 's/ (\d+)$/sprintf( " %s", scalar(localtime($1)))/e'
