more packagers nitpicks:
links/scripts from package.ARCH are supposed to land in the PATH, at 
least for packaging.
What purpose is the "man" symlink from texlive-scripts.ARCH? It breaks 
the on linux commonly
installed man/man-db for me.

mktexlsr(link) is now in texlive.infra, but i'd like to avoid 
texlive.infra as it also ships tlmgr which is not
recommended to be packaged. As mktexlsr is needed on any texlive 
installation(although it's just the symlink in that package), may it be 
moved elsewhere, e.g. texlive-scripts?

Following packages name ifxetex,ifluatex,... in longdesc, but these 
packages don't exist anymore in favour
of package iftex:
These may also list iftex as depend.

beamer in longdesc lists dependencies(atbegshi, etoolbox, hyperref, 
which are only partly listed in it's depend list.
