Trying to install JadeTeX (2.18) on Debian Woody systems will cause
error conditions and failure to create the .fmt files on install.

The critical error is the following:

  File: t2aenc.def 1999/11/29 v1.0c Cyrillic encoding definition file
  ! LaTeX Error: Encoding scheme `' unknown.

I have determined the fix for this and submitted this patch to the
Debian TeTeX maintainer, but I am emailing these groups in the hopes
that this helps people avoid hair-rending TeX grubbing.

Apply the following patch and all should be well.  Just reinstall the
package again and it should build the .fmt properly.
