comment How to tell package manager that dependencies are already installed?
That's probably true for Ubuntu. Arch uses vanilla packages and pushes them to the repos as they are released upstream. You can install all of the tex-* packages you require using pacman (or makepkg if they are in the AUR) and be up-to-date.

Yes. Remove the untracked packages, install texlive with pacman and then you won't have to worry about it all going pear shaped down the track (which it will with your current approach).

The simplest, sanest approach would be just to use pacman to manage your packages.
