 Are you sure texlive-tetex-2010 depends on the *new version* of
 tex-tetex?  See print/texlive-tetex/Makefile,v 1.8; it depends on

 I don't think this is a problem in texlive packages.
 texlive-tetex-2011 is an up-to-date version in pkgsrc, and tex-tetex
 just requires it.  I don't know how pkg_rr works, but I think it
 should be able to handle an upgrade path like this.

 How does this solve the problem?  There's nothing wrong with the
 current dependency information: texlive-tetex-2011 requires
 tex-tetex>=3.0.24482, which is the current version in pkgsrc and
 conflicts with texlive-tetex-2010.
