[NTG-pdftex] pdfinitex != pdftex --ini?

problem around texmfmp.c:

inipdftex call gives in main.c of texmfmp.c (= pdfetexextra.c), with
some debug printf() lines:

=========argv[0]           <inipdftex>
=========kpse_program_name <inipdftex>
=========INI_PROGRAM       <pdfeinitex>

so it does not match the INI_PROGRAM, therefore it doesn't go into ini
mode.

inipdfetex doesn't either, obviously. But when I do

ln -s pdfetex pdfeinitex

pdfeinitex call gives:

hahe@hahepc1:~$ pdfeinitex y
=========argv[0]           <pdfeinitex>
=========kpse_program_name <pdfeinitex>
=========INI_PROGRAM       <pdfeinitex>
This is pdfeTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.20a-rc1-2.1 (Web2C 7.5.2) (INITEX)
 %&-line parsing enabled.

So somehow the INI_PROGRAM name matching would need an extension so that
more combinations for INI_PROGRAM name are possible.  Particularily the
names starting with inipdf... currently have no use, it seems.
