texmf src package is a copy of the tetex source package (or at least has the same length and md5sum)

Thanks for the report. It looks like some strange mixup has happened.
In my original packaging, it correctly says:
$ cat texmf/setup.hint
sdesc: "This is texmf-20020530-3, an upgrade helper for tetex."
ldesc: "This is texmf-20020530-3, an upgrade helper for tetex.
It has a dependency on tetex, to ensure a smoothly
ugrade to the new tetex packaging scheme.
Once tetex-20020530-3 or later has been successfully installed,
this package may be removed."

Why do you feel that way? The upgrade helper packages were also
created, and thus have a source package (but a bit smaller than 39MB
$ ls -l texmf tetex-beta

Chris mentioned that there was a problem with external-source of (one,
some?) the tetex packages, but now I see that some the setup.hints
were changed. I can't tell this was before or after that
external-source problem. I suspect that it has to do with the old
tetex-beta and texmf packages sharing the same hint files, and some
conflict with that.
