Why does pari require tetex-dvi?

I am wondering why an upgrade to F13 suddenly plonked a massive texlive 
hairball on my disk.

Various Perl crypto modules have a dependency on perl-Math-Pari, which 
requires pari. Ok.

# rpm -q -l pari

Ok. Just a pair of .so-s. Seems fairly straightforward.

# rpm -q --requires pari



This dependency brings in xdvik, and a massive amount of tetex-related stuff 
cascades down.

I do not understand this. I don't see anything in pari that requires tetex
