Solution: instead of 'texconfig init', do 'fmtutil --byfmt
formatname', where in jadetex's case formatname is one of jadetex and
pdfjadetex.  Other solutions may be possible, for example, by creating
a custom fmtutil conffile and using it with 'fmtutil --cnffile
/path/to/my-conf --all'.

texconfig is an interface, a wrapper around the real tools.  For
example, 'texconfig init' is equivalent to 'fmtutil --all'.  OTOH
fmtutil is a wrapper too; a Real TeX Guru(tm) would use initex and
pdfinitex directly :-)
