Thank you very much! That explains it and your suggestion fixed the
problem. However, is this really the _right_ behaviour?
o portage actually knows something about tetex 2.0-r1 since it is
o --upgradeonly promises to not downgrade: regardless of whether
there is currently an ebuild for the installed version, the
version is known, and IMHO that fixes the semantics of
o maybe --pretend could provide an indication that no ebuild for
the currently installed version can be found
