IMHO, providing options info is important during the install. How am
I supposed to read the kernel source without loading up my ethernet
module and fire up dpkg-ftp? It is not just about ethernet modules.
It's slightly surprising that there doesn't seem to be a document

No, texbin doesn't configure.
