Justification: renders package unusable
*** Please type your report below this line ***
The following message appeared while upgrading xmltex and tetex
The system was configuring tetex-bin at the time and the new version
of xmltex (1.9-11) was soon unpacked.
fmtutil-sys: running `tex -ini -jobname=xmltex -progname=xmltex
&latex xmltex.ini' ...
This is TeX, Version 3.141592 (Web2C 7.5.4) (INITEX)
---! /var/lib/texmf/web2c/latex.fmt was written by pdfetex
(Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)
I think the problem is that tetex changed the default tex engine to
pdfetex and the latex format uses this engine and not tex.
(This claim is supported by /etc/texmf/01tetex.cnf)
I suggest to make 40xmltex.cnf more robust: do not make any
assumptions on the tex engines the formats use.

I have managed to generate the formats with this change.
