    Yes, they do.  They say "you may not use this technical material
    unless you also do this unrelated non-technical thing".

They say that if you redistribute modified versions the technical
material, you must do so in certain ways.  That is a packaging
requirement.  The GPL also contains packaging requirements: inclusion
of the preamble, inclusion of copyright notices, etc.  The TeX
license has a much more annoying packaging requirement.  Those are
both licenses that Debian accepts, I believe.
