texinfo in unstable is still 4.7, the last maintainer upload was  a year
ago (2004-07-13) with two non-maintainer uploads after this, the last on
2004-09-26; after this nothing happened.  I doubt that Debian texinfo
will always be newer.

I had a couple of versions of the lmodern package working with
tetex-2.0.2 and tetex-3.0.  Where do you see the problems?
