This is the information I was missing.  I did search for mlnames.sty on
CTAN, without results, but didn't think about querying tlmgr.

Building those three formats already failed during installation without
me noticing.  And I don't know why it failed.  In install-tl.log, I see
these lines

So, nothing wrong with dependencies, the packages had successfully been
downloaded during installation.  After forcibly removing and
reinstalling packages passivetex and mptopdf, formats build fine now.
