there are indeed two magyar.ldf files.  there's one in the babel
distribution, and there's a much revised and updated one (size 217599,
it says here) which has been awaiting adoption into babel for some time.

see https://lists.dante.de/pipermail/ctan-ann/2006-October/002320.html

(the arrival of this sort of stuff, and johannes' failure to deal with
it, creates a problem for us working on ctan, as well for people
building a distribution.)

there's a large backlog of babel stuff -- several new languages as well
as upgrades -- french, spanish and hungarian, arabic, ...  :-(

what this means to tex-live i'm not sure, but i wouldn't be surprised if
what seems a "rogue" magyar package is in fact embodying the revised
.ldf rather than an outdated one.
