rxvt is a color vt102 terminal emulator intended as an xterm(1) replacement for users who do not require features such as Tektronix 4014 emulation and toolkit-style configurability. As a result, rxvt uses much less swap space.
This package has no upstream and has likely security vulnerabilities. Users can trivially upgrade to x11-terms/rxvt-unicode, which is its modern day replacement, with no drawbacks. See bug 618250. No reverse dependencies. To be removed in 30 days.
