I am a bit surprised to find no response at all to this
seemingly serious issue.

I believe someone might try to fix this wrong situation
but only for reference I attach a simple shell script with 
which I tested already.

If you save the script as foo.sh then doing in tetex-base-1.0.2
"sh ../foo.sh" will move the non-free elements to ../tetex-nonfree-1.0.2
with which you can build tetex-nonfree package.

As I am not sure if tetex-base_1.0.2.orig.tar.gz itself should
be changed or not so I provided a option '-orig' and if
in tetex-base-1.0.2.orig you do "sh ../foo.sh -orig" will
remove the non-free elements from tetex-base-1.0.2.orig

Please remember to do "rm tetex-base_1.0.2.orig.tar.gz"

set -x
if [ $# -eq 0 ] ; then
elif [ X$1 = X-orig ] ; then
echo "Wrong usage!"
exit 1
## nehyph[1,2] and textmerg
mkdir -p $NONFREE/texmf/tex/latex
mkdir -p $NONFREE/texmf/tex/generic/hyphen
mkdir -p $NONFREE/texmf/doc/latex
mv texmf/tex/generic/hyphen/nehyph{1,2}.tex $NONFREE/texmf/tex/generic/hyphen/
mv texmf/tex/latex/textmerg $NONFREE/texmf/tex/latex
mv texmf/doc/latex/textmerg $NONFREE/texmf/doc/latex

Note I do nothing about koma so it will be included
in tetex-base.  You need to fiddle with rules if you
want koma in tetex-extra.
