Guys this discussion is about to, if it has not already, become circular.
That's o.k. too, but you guys are not comprehending the information in
some of these emails.

Um, the answer to this is the same for ANY two or more packages that may
be used to do the same thing. And that has already been answered.-> Use
the power of the declaratory fields that can exist in the PKGBUILDs

Also, please do NOT get hung up on which repo a package exists in. In the
end it usually does not matter. And "tetex" (or it's 'replacement') is, as
far as I can tell, one of those programs wherein it does not matter.

Very best regards;

Bob Finch
