Hmm, I guess I have to do an Perforce Checkout to see the correct
Changelog. The dvips in teTeX-beta itself looks more recent.

I tried to install tetex 2.99.1 using an texmf-tree from 2.0.2. All I
got was:

hille at preusse:~/bug/266718$ dvips test
This is dvips(k) 5.94b Copyright 2004 Radical Eye Software
' TeX output 2004.11.07:2107' -> test.ps
dvips: Font CMSY10 used in file fig.0 is not in the mapping file.
dvips: Font CMR10 used in file fig.0 is not in the mapping file.
<texc.pro><special.pro>. [1<fig.0>]

I guess, thats due to the the fact, that all locations within the
texmf-tree changed. I guess, I have to install the whole tetex-beta
below /opt to do thorough testing.
