I understand why people are confused (at least I think). The required
packages aren't there, I made some improvements in xypic depending on
the newest release of the depending packages after private mailing with
nils rennebarth (maintainer of the packages) and I assumed that he would
be releasing those versions soon. Because of whatever he didn't, probably
has a real job of something like that. I think I'll change it back to

texbin (>=3.1415-4) etc.

I don't see a reason to use the confusing > meaning >=.
