Ok I saw this one. I'm just in the process of releasing a new version
of the packages which search for old packages and give a hint like
this in it. But... this procedure does not allways work.
If dpkg deinstalls mflib and/or xypic before latex, deinstallation of
latex will fail because install-fmt-base is missing. So you have to do
in two steps as supposed in my preinst script.
