[tex-k] crippled TeX package

Hi Pierre,

Sorry, what FC10 does is not up to us.  You'll have to ask them.
Every distro likes to mess around with TeX in their own way.

As you may know, TeX Live does include initex, but the fmtutil.cnf we
use does not call initex, it ends up running "tex -ini" or "pdftex -ini"
or whatever.

I'll check what happens when our fmtutil is called on a nonexistent
engine.  But I doubt Fedora is using an unmodified fmtutil anyway.
