[tex-live] updmap.cfg (and fmtutil.cnf)

I think there is a layout-inconsistency here in TeX Live. The tool  
fmtutil is installed like the tool updmap from the Makefile in  
texk/tetex, but fmtutil.cnf is installed from texk/web2c and updmap.cfg  
is not installed at all.

I think it would be cleanest if fmtutil.cnf and updmap.cfg should be  
installed from texk/tetex's Makefile in combination with the tools  
(fmtutil and updmap), but I can live with any fix that makes the  
install work in a clean environment.
