Sometimes TL's splitting is rather odd. pslatex is not really a "support
tools for PostScript files" as it says in bin-pstools.tpm. It is a
wrapper about 'latex' that adds a '\RequirePackage{pslatex}'. That way
you can compile your LaTeX file with the 'beautiful' Times + Helvetica +
Courier combination without having to alter the source.
