libidl seems to be a legacy lib which is no longer needed. Packages in the
repo now uses libidl2.
libsvg is old. It's a devel snapshot dating from 2005.
About non-specified depends: I won't go through the thousands of packages
in the repo to see if their depends are correct.
If a package has one
of these libs as a non-specified depends, a user will eventually get an error
and will file a bug report. The dev with the brocken package will need to
readd the missing depends in the repo.
