But I was regularly finding outdated packages there, even
though I always kept teTeX up to date.
Indeed. Linux distributions are notorious for having ancient versions
of TeX. I do not understand their reasoning, but they are not amenable
to change, so ... we users lose.
install-stnd.info in its subdirectory, which was probably unusable
Only if the symlink was to a nonexistent file. Oh, I suppose Debian
could have written their install-info to barf on symlinks, but I doubt it.
Given all these problems, I'll probably return with teTeX

TeX Live works fine on Debian. Just don't try to install it (or any
symlinks :) in the system directories. Let it live under /usr/local or
/usr/bin. Would deleting all sylinks to /usr/share/TeX (plus
/usr/info and /usr/man), and reinstalling teTeX get me up and
running faster than trying to replicate another (working) Debian?
I cannot say. Sounds worth a try.
