[tex-live] (fwd) [Bug 146743] Re: Program "vlna" missing from package.

Dear all!

On the Ubuntu side one user mentioned that the vlna is not present. And
this is true, it is only present for arch=win32.

Is there a reason for this? I cannot understand the documentation at
all, but the user told me that it should be necessary on all platforms
(see below).

Any comments?

Thanks a lot and all the best
