Good lord. I guess there should be some instructions, then. I've never 
"installed" TEI before -- I just use the online Roma -- so I just 
assumed a package with "all" in it would give me everything. It would be 
good to include some instructions, then, or a script to run install them 
in the right order. Perhaps that's included in the zip file, which is 
still downloading for me.

But I'm still puzzled by the use of "i386" -- how does that relate to 
dependencies? Usually it means a 32-bit package that won't necessarily 
work on 64-bit.
