Yes, installing that package does help and even makes the PDF looks better 
as the Russian fonts look "cleaner" (at least to my non-Russian eye).
It also gets rid of all warnings and errors during the build.

I will add cm-super to the build-deps for the manual (there goes another 
60MB, sigh ;-)

Indeed, because I also don't have cm-super installed on my Etch system, so 
there still is an unexplained change in behavior.

AFAIK I have never modified any of the TeX configuration files (finding 
them largely incomprehensible) and I also frequently build the manual 
using a clean pbuilder environment anyway, so I very much doubt that that 
is a factor.

More later, have to go now.
