Yes, it's as simple as that.  It's a bug in config.garuda, but the file
on CTAN is correct, so it seems that this is a bug in the Debian package.

Both don't work (or rather, config.garuda and config.norasi both have
wrong syntax), and mktexpk tried to generate bitmap fonts and failed.

Sorry for bothering you with that.  I even looked up the syntax of
config.PRINTER files for dvips, but later didn't notice the error.
