For the past 17 months, each rawhide report has had broken dh-make deps.
The package was imported 21 Oct 2010 depending on a non-existing
"debhelper" package and has been broken ever since.

We have the orphan removal process where releng purges orphaned packages
and those that have failed to build for 2 Fedora releases. But
what about packages with broken deps? Can these stay in the distro
forever, even though they are impossible to install and thus unusable?
