This could be an option, too. But we need to definitly resolve the
problems regarding the config.ps-file, if we do not want to revert to
previous version of teTeX (see the new thread from today regarding lyx).
It seems that there are some more people having problems with it and I
think we should resolve this problem.
Btw.: It would be nice to know what demon (sorry, I don't know his real
name) as the maintainer is thinking about this. Anybody knows if he's in
holidays or something like this?
