Hmm. But if we replace the basic engine (etex/pdfetex) we *have* to
rebuild all formats. Example:
- texlive-base-bin (providing formats etex, pdfetex, ...) and 
  texlive-latex-base (providing format latex, pdflatex) are installed
  and configured.
- texlive-base-bin (only) is upgraded with a new binary etex/pdfetex
  (new version of pdfetex eg).
At this time I *have* to recreate all formats. No?

Best wishes
