Bug#386074: tetex-base: please update version of xkeyval package

Hm, for whatever reason this didn't happen for me. The xkeyval in Debian
was taking precedence over the one in /usr/local, but I suppose that
this could be an artifact of the rather strange packaging job that XeTeX
did. I'm not going to worry about it too much.

Understood. Thanks for your time, and for your quick response.
