There was an older latex.fmt in /usr/share/texmf-var/web2c/latex.fmt which
was causing problems.

export ia="/usr/share/texmf"; export ib="/web2c/latex.fmt"; mv `echo
$ia`-var$ib `echo $1`-var`echo $ib`.old; cp $ia$ib `echo $ia`-var$ib;
unset ia; unset ib

This is the output from make install in /usr/src/jadetex before shuffling
the files around.
