I didn't notice it so you're not stupid to me :-)

I'm now using the packages you uploaded this night.

One of the scripts in /etc/cron.daily discovered the following
dangling symlinks from texlive-omega:

   /usr/share/man/man1/odvicopy.1 -> dvicopy.1
   /usr/share/man/man1/odvips.1 -> dvips.1
   /usr/share/man/man1/odvitype.1 -> dvitype.1

The actual man-pages are gzipped so the symlinks should be:

   /usr/share/man/man1/odvicopy.1.gz -> dvicopy.1.gz
   /usr/share/man/man1/odvips.1.gz -> dvips.1.gz
   /usr/share/man/man1/odvitype.1.gz -> dvitype.1.gz

In /etc/texmf/texmf.d/65BibTeX.cnf BSTINPUTS is defined as

   BSTINPUTS = .;$TEXMF/bibtex/bst//

TeX Live is shipped with an kpathsearch enable version of bibtex8 and
searches its sorting order files (.csf) along the BSTINPUTS-path.
Since the .csf files are installed under /usr/share/texmf/bibtex/csf/
the definition should be changed to

   BSTINPUTS = .;$TEXMF/bibtex/{bst,csf}//

But this is probably a general TeX Live issue.
