I consider it a bug in the old versions that it was only recommends. kdvi fails to do almost anything - especially viewing plain documents - without having the fonts and the kpsewitch binary installed. If you try using kdvi on a document without those things installed, you will gets lots and lots of error messages. So kdvi needs it to work. The way to declare that in debian is by using a Depends: line. > These dependencies may not be wanted, as in my own case where I have > already installed TeXLive2007 directly from the TUG distro in > my /usr/local/texlive/2007 tree. well.. when you install stuff from source without telling the package managre that you do it, you will run into all sorts of things like this. Generally it is not supported - but you might be able to look into the equivs program to help you hack around it. > I can live with kdvi *recommending* texlive package(s), but not with > *depending* on them.
