You are right - it was an earlier version which I thought had
got stuck during install.  I have just checked the latest package
file (from mirrors.rcn.net) and it does have a problem:

  $ bzcat tetex-base-2.0.2-13.tar.bz2 > /dev/null
  bzcat: Data integrity error when decompressing.
          Input file = tetex-base-2.0.2-13.tar.bz2, output file = (stdout)

Perhaps the integrity of the package files should be routinely checked
when they are added to the master distribution (at the same time the MD5
signatures are calculated).
