[tex-live] pdftex LFS bug: on mac too?

    pdfTeX and LFS can be tested with the files in
    svn co http://scm.foundry.supelec.fr/svn/pdftex/tests/lfs

I am well aware.  That is what Thanh and I did test a million times
before the release.  Obviously it is insufficient :(.

Anyway, I specifically said "set up a proper test regression
infrastructure".  (Not that I seriously expected anyone to jump at the
chance. :)  It is not hard to construct individual tests and run them in
an ad hoc way, and that is what we do now.  It is setting up something
systematic that is painful, time-consuming, and has not been done.  See
Master/support/tests in the repo for my first attempts at it, some years
