You may have solved this problem by now--sorry, I'm a little behind in 
my mail--but I recall a similar problem a year or so ago.  It was 
produced by conflicts between two different repos, something like 
freshrpms and livna.  They both had IceWM packages but one's had a 
dependency that that the other's didn't but yum was confused by that 
clash and was looking for the dependency in the wrong repo.  Turning off 
one of the repos (temporarily) avoided the problem (there's a 
commandline option for ignoring a repo that I can never remember). 
Check the list archives.
