Bug#413977: xgdvi does not coexist with texlive, it demands tetex

Package: xgdvi
Version: 1.2.4-6
Severity: normal

I tried to install xgdvi. It insists on pulling in tetex packages, which
conflict with texlive that I use.

I may be wrong, but I think viewer apps are able to view dvi files no
matter what kind of latex were involved in creating the dvi.

Please consider having xgdvi depending on either tetex or texlive,
instead of demanding tetex.  If it really can't work with texlive, just
close this bug.
