Actually, tetex-bin still lists fileutils, sh-utils, and textutils in 
its "requires:" line, at least on mirrors.rcn.net and sigunix.cwru.edu. 
I was wondering why setup.exe still wanted to install the removed 
packages, and then I found this old thread about it.

I like the fact that the empty packages in ZZZRemovedPackages install 
nothing of their own and install coreutils instead, but I understand 
why others consider it unnerving that setup.exe seems to want to 
reinstall packages that have been removed.
