[tex-live] Missing dependency information

I've recently installed jnovy's Fedora packages of TeX Live 2009 and
the process went great except for one little snag I've hit so far.

I've got some random tex files laying around that I used successfully
with xelatex from texlive 2007 and 2008, but I was getting a weird
error with the new 2009 installation, and going over the TeX logs it
became apparent that the LatinModern package wasn't installed as a
dependency for fontspec or latex or xetex. Once I installed the
texlive-lm package, my documents started formatting properly (hooray!)

I'm definitely not an expert at this by any means, and I have no idea
which package specifically should be depending on lm, but jnovy says
that his package dependencies are sourced from the upstream
texlive.tlpdb file, so if someone could fix that so that idiots like
me don't have to figure out that the lm package is missing.... that
would be awesome.

Thanks for the work on TeX!
