You should add the repositories for the dependencies as well, e.g.:

install.packages("mypackage", type="source",repos=c("http://myrepository.example.com", "http://cran.r-project.org/"))

or make your repository more complete (e.g. if you want to pin certain versions to guarantee interoperability).
