As far as I can tell, Claire and I were positive on
upgrading packages in teTeX but Adrian and some members
seemed to be negative on it.

I agree with your idea even now but I'm afraid this might 
be delicate issue.

I would like to hear an idea/opinion from more members.

In fact what did you want to do?  What application did you
use for freetype?

Please be more concrete.

You need to install tetex-extra for texdoctk.

Sorry for incomplete documentation but please
install tetex-extra and try again.

Yes, I myself noticed this change when I upgaded one of
my Debian system and found also Bug#174694.

No problem perhaps, except I can't install libwww-ssl0

I can't reproduce this bug.  I only got;

  I am the author of the video deinterlacer application 'tvtime' which
uses libfreetype to render text on top of live video:

  http://tvtime.sourceforge.net/
  http://tvtime.sourceforge.net/screenshots/25-feb-03-simpsons.jpg

  I have also been working on a headline scroller application.  Both of
these applications benefit from having proper kerning information for
the text.  To attach an afm file in freetype you use this function:

  http://www.freetype.org/freetype2/docs/reference/ft2-base_interface.html#FT_Attach_File

  As hinted in the documentation, and shown quite clearly in the source
code, Freetype currently can only read afm files for its kerning table.

I have installed latest tetex-extra from unstable, too. I even tried
"dpkg-reconfigure tetex-extra" as root under bash, and texdoctk still
does not fscking work. Error message is still the same.
