Hmmm. On my 9.0 system I have tetex-2.0.2-48.i586 installed and yet I have the
same broken links as Carl has. But *my* pin tells me differently:

./CD3/suse/i586/te_cont-2.0.2-48.i586.rpm: -rw-r--r-- root root
93024 Jan 23 2003 /usr/share/texmf/context/perltk/texexec.pl

plus all relevant documentation and man files. Texexec is mainly a wrapper, so
you could live without it. But if you use tex for a variety of invocations it
could come in handy. There's a manual in the same package:
/usr/share/texmf/doc/context/base/mtexexec.pdf
If you only use latex or pdflatex you don't need it.
