Issue #324 has been updated by fauno.

provides doesn't mean the replacement is fully functional, i believe some pkgbuilds needing some library that's already pulled by a dependency skip mentioning it, leading to different binary results.  in this case the X libraries would be missing or would have to be added to the PKGBUILD (it could help spot faulty packages though).
Bug #324: [chcleanup] Doesn't respect installed provides

Author: lukeshu
Status: open
Priority: bug
Target version: 

Say a package makedepends on "emacs", and "emacs-nox" is installed. emacs-nox provides=(emacs).  However, if you run libremakepkg, what is going to happen is that `chcleanup` will remove emacs-nox, then `makepkg -s` will install emacs, and all of it's X11 dependencies.
