Bug#422391: xetex/xelatex complains about xetex.fmt not being found

Package: texlive-xetex
Version: 2007-5

Running xetex or xelatex on any input file results in an error like this:

  $ xetex somefile.tex 
  This is XeTeXk, Version 3.141592-2.2-0.996 (Web2C 7.5.6)
   %&-line parsing enabled.
  kpathsea: Running mktexfmt xetex.fmt
  I can't find the format file `xetex.fmt'!
The installation seems succesful though:

  $ sudo apt-get install --reinstall texlive-xetex

Am I doing something wrong?
