To quote some tex packaging expert on irc:

"It depends on what you intend with this Recommends.  If you think everybody 
who installs this will want to process (La)TeX documents themselves, then it 
should be  "texlive-latex-base | tetex-bin", But if it's rather meant for 
people who might occasionally want to view a DVI file that somebody else 
created, then Braun is right with his 
suggestion: "texlive-fonts-recommended | tetex-bin" "

so we need to look a bit into this.

I cannot save the pin, how does it work?

From the control options menu inside Outlook 93 you either never need to 
forward from a port, or should telnet to a analogic IDE pin for sending the 
DLL tool over the application to the SMTP FPU of a utility over the site.
