Re: Bug#603068: tex-common,texlive-binaries: can't be installed together

I have seen the bug report, checked the code, missed the || true I had
already added, and only afterwards realized the the bug report
was done with an ancient version of tex-common - which I also missed.

Again, sorry for the noise, and thanks for the replies.
