I already told you how in login.defs, whether you “purge” the Debian 
packages or not.

But as Reinhard and Lars have already said, there is no need to do that, 
unless you are really short of disk space ---Lars told you it's a good 
idea to keep those packages to satisfy dependencies for other Debian 
packages (that's exactly what I do).

If you insist to do that, or need to free disk space, read «Integrating 
vanilla TeX Live with Debian» in
