Yeah, the architectures that failed to build pdns previously have all
successfully built the subsequent version of it.  I suspect this isn't a
tetex-bin bug at all, so am downgrading it.

One of the more suspicious lines in the log of the build failures is

Error: `etex -ini  -jobname=jadetex -progname=jadetex &latex jadetex.ini' failed

This happens during the setup of tetex-bin, *before* jadetex has been
configured; so I think this is actually a bug, probably historic, in
jadetex, which seems to have left config files around incorrectly on purge.

Reassigning to jadetex accordingly for further investigation; hopefully this
is a known bug in previous versions of jadetex that have since been fixed.
