Random information tidbits that might be helpful:
As a workaround, one could install _both_ teTeX and teTeX2 -- see
Alternatively, we might consider allowing a dependency on _either_ teTeX
or teTeX2 in the relevant buildlink2's or DEPENDS directives. But note
that teTeX2 is not fully compatible with teTeX 1.x!
P.S.: This strikes me as more appropriate for tech-pkg...
