tex-config may not configure tex completely

Some further investigation is needed, but it seems like tex-config (or maybe something else?) isn't completely configuring the format cache correctly. Jessica reported getting the following when she tried to TeX a beamer file today:

kpathsea: Running mktexfmt latex.fmt
fmtutil: config file `fmtutil.cnf' not found.
I can't find the format file `latex.fmt'!

Running fmtutil-sys --all fixed the problem. Maybe tex-config's postinst should run that instead of fmtutil-sys --refresh?

I've made the change suggested in the description and uploaded it to proposed. I consider this to be a Mostly Harmless change, so I'll plan to move it to production on Friday.
