It does.  But LilyPond needs to get the font and character dimensions
of the TeX fonts that are used.  This goes through the kpathsea
library and actual font files.  Juggling with two tex distributions is
asking for trouble.

I would suggest to use tetex alone; or create two users: where each
users only sees one tex distribution (PATH and TEX* variables).
