# texexec --nonstopmode --fast --make --pdftex cont-en
TeXExec | using search method 'kpsewhich'
TeXExec | using existing database
TeXExec | using tex engine pdftex
TeXExec | using tex format path /var/lib/texmf/web2c/pdftex
TeXExec | unable to make format due to lack of permissions
TeXExec | 
TeXExec | 
TeXExec | 
TeXExec | runtime: 0.195613
# echo $?

Can we fix this? The lack of permissions is of course a fake, the
problem is that there is a link
	pdftex -> pdfetex
in /var/lib/texmf/web2c/, but no directory pdfetex. But still texexec
should return something \not= 0

Thanks and all the best
