I think keyanalyze does exactly what you want.  Given a keyring, it
will list the strong set, in which everyone can reach everyone else,
and isolated sets, which can be connected to the strong set with a
single connection between sets.  Any keys which aren't specifically
listed are (essentially) only self-signed and also need a connection
to/from the strong set.
