OK. But a "make install" installs a fmtutil.cnf in texmf that
contains lines like:
xmltex pdfetex language.dat &latex xmltex.ini
pdfxmltex pdfetex language.dat &pdflatex pdfxmltex.ini
jadetex pdfetex language.dat &latex jadetex.ini
pdfjadetex pdfetex language.dat &pdflatex pdfjadetex.ini
So, there, pdfetex is still mentioned. No harm done, I guess, because
pfdetex is a symlink to pdftex.
Any reason except taste that pdftex instead of pdfetex became the
basis and pdfetex the symlink instead of the other way around as it
used to be?
