fmtutil.cnf in TeX Live contains commented lines:

# --- strange things
#!physe         tex     -               physe.ini
#!text1         tex     -               text1.ini
#!phyzzx        tex     -               phyzzx.ini

apparently, some of people building binaries have this line
uncommented. how/why that happened?
