 Hmm, I sent this mail to the maintainer personally.  Maybe he hasn't gotten
 around to it yet?
 Here's the mail:

 That is enough for creating a working installation.
 The problem is with the teTeX-share pkg in that it contains a
 half-finished installation of listings.  This causes problems when
 using listings.sty from the user's texmf directory and also when using
 it directly from the system dir.
 A solution would be to remove the files from teTeX-share and relying
 on the user to install from teTeX-sharesrc themselves, or building
 a proper listings installation by running `tex listings.ins' from the
 share sources, thereby generating a new teTeX-share which contains the
 missing files.
 Try yourself: Run `tex listings.ins' from the share sources and see
 which files are created.  These files are all needed, as well as
 lstpatch.sty (at least.  Maybe more).  Try simply including the package
 in a document to check if the installation works.
 I hope this clears it up a bit.  If you have further questions I'll
 be happy to reply.
