Description of problem:
kpathsea is pulling in all of texlive, which could be a problem for the livecd,
since evince requires kpathsea. That adds roughly 100MB in rpms.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This is the duplicate of another bug, but I cannot find
it offhand. Anyway kpathsea calls programs from texlive
and evince needs fonts from texlive and the texlive machinery
to render dvi.
Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2008-01-23 00:30:08 EST
The packaging modification of the baseline texlive package is in progress
already. The main ideas are to package xetex in texlive-xetex (removed
dependency on teckit-devel, dvipdfmx), packaging stuff using ghostscript and
metafont with X support in texlive-utils (removing dependendencies on X, Perl),
also we should consider Requires: mendex as it's not needed by anything in
texlive and is kept for a sole purpose of tetex compatibility. These changes
should be ready for commit during today.
