I'd like to know, too.
I seem to have them installed - and while performing a yum update, it 
told me that some tetex-related files were written as .rpmnew (even 
though I have not modified the originals).
I went through the list and overwrote the originals with the .rpmnew 
versions - but if tetex is not really needed, I might as well remove it.
