please give information on how the ctan stuff differs from the debian
directory or conf file layout, most of the time, Debian is *very*
conforming to this kind of stuff (yeah, how precise is this !)

BTW, there is a simple series of steps to do a single user install of
any .sty file :
- create a ~/texmf/tex dir
- put you newsletr.sty file into it
- run texhash
