No, it's typical XeTeX, complaining about subtleties one usually does  
not notice.

Fontspec's no-math option does not change the use of math fonts. For  
text fontspec switches to Latin Modern, which is installed as OTF,  
i.e., in the format XeTeX loves. This switch also resets the use of  
fonts in maths typing, away from the CM default to the minimally  
lighter Latin Modern fonts.

TeX Live brings its own package manager, tlmgr (also in GUI form). So  
there is not enough sense in re-packing it for Debian (every year,  
every time an update on CTAN happens). It would be nice, OTOH, if  
proxy packages would exist to satisfy other packages' dependencies  
from a modern TeX distribution...
