Sorry, I answered a bit hastily. I don't see a reason for the
octave-forge package to have a direct dependency on tetex-bin. But
doesn't the texinfo package depend on tetex in some way? I guess not:
sdesc: "Documentation system for on-line information and printed output"

though I'm not sure why it doesn't. Isn't TeX needed to make this
package fully functional?
