I'm wrong here after all! repoclosure seems to try and resolve the
requirement within the repository the original package was found:

syncekonnector (from updates) for example just requires some kdepim
components, but repoclosure reports broken deps from syncekonnector
because kdepim isn't in updates. It's the same for most other reported
"broken dependencies".

Maybe what repoclosure needs is a mode or option to resolve dependencies
across repositories also?
