Some script inserted by lilypond into the login script path (presumably
/etc/profile.d/lilypond-profile.sh) contained an invocation of kpsexpand.
Since kpsexpand is part of the tetex-bin package, installing tetex-bin got
rid of the "not found" message.

setup.exe, after installing all the packages.
There are also preremove scripts that are run before the corresponding
packages are removed.
