To start with, I'd like to apologize for Debian's jadetex being broken
for so long now.  I'm trying to fix it.

Hmm... I'm having serious problems trying to fix jadetex.  First off,
there *is* no file hyperref.cfg.

I've got it mostly fixed but I can't get pdfjadetex to work unless I
change the




This does smell like some sort of wierd tetex bug.  Is it filed?  Is
there a better way for me to workaround?  Could I conditionally use
this line based on whether I'm running pdfjadetex vs jadetex?

I've got all the other problems fixed.  Notably, I'm using fmtutil
with it's own config file to create the .fmt files.  Sebastian, would
you be interested in my fmtutil.cnf file?   It is:

# jadefmtutil.cnf: configuration file for fmtutil; jadetex flavor.
# invoke as fmtutil --cnffile fmtutil.cnf --all
# format        engine  pattern-file    arguments
jadetex         tex     language.dat    \&latex jadetex.ini
pdfjadetex      pdftex  language.dat    \&pdflatex pdfjadetex.ini
