* etex, latex, luatex, lualatex, pdflatex, pdfluatex, tex
* texexec (at least option `--paranoid' should be mandatory)
Perhaps the tex programs shouldn't be in the list. I'm not sure there's
any great need for them.
Therefore the recommendation should be also installing `rpdfcrop' and
using `rpdfcrop' instead of `pdfcrop' in the command list.
I don't want to introduce this complication now.
PS: BTW ulqda is broken:
| Can't locate Digest/SHA1.pm in @INC ...
SHA1.pm is missing in tlpkg/tlperl/lib/Digest/
I guess I'll just remove ulqda.
It wouldn't surprise me if other Perl scripts had other dependencies
which we do not satisfy.
