Package tetex-extra (version 0.4pl6-3) still includes a copy of the DC
fonts, that gets installed under
/usr/lib/texmf/fonts/source/jknappen/dc/.  Although you are right in
that DC fonts are basically obsolete now, they continue to be needed,
at least for some old DVI files to work correctly.  I guess they'll
have to be moved to non-free, for they still have a copyright note that
prevents them from being distributed commercially.
