I don't think those queries work fully with --alldeps/resolve as you
don't have resolve all the deps of the package so if I build
requires /usr/bin/foo then we won't resolve that.

repoquery --archlist=src --whatrequires --alldeps desktop-file-utils |
grep kde

Grepping the specs:

./kdebindings/kdebindings.spec:BuildRequires: /usr/bin/desktop-file-install
./kdemultimedia/kdemultimedia.spec:BuildRequires: /usr/bin/desktop-file-install
