Right. These packages need to be updated to reflect the "newly"
introduced virtual provides. The reason of adding virtual provides was
to make packages not dependent on a praticular TeX distribution.

These virtual provides, such as tex(tex), tex(latex) or
tex(xetex) were added at the beginning of the year 2008 so it works at
least for Fedora 9 and higher.

We should file bugs for these packages.
