texlive-base: Claims to recreate pdftexconfig.tex upon clean install

Summary: breaks lenny->sid upgrade; probably RC

This also happens during an upgrade from lenny. Why? I guess because this
conffile was previously associated with texlive-base-bin, which got removed
(and the unchanged pdftexconfig.tex with it).

The original report is about a harmless message. Unfortunately, in my case the
resurrection logic does not work at all. The preinst tries to take the file
from /usr/share/texlive-base/pdftexconfig.tex. But there's nothing there yet,
because the package is not unpacked yet (preinst, remember!). Therefore the
script fails, preventing package installation completely and stopping the

Putting something at the above path works around the bug.
