Neither the name languages.dat nor the location "generic" nor the search
path is hard-coded into texconfig&friends.


  $ fmtutil --showhyphen lamed

  $ fmtutil --showhyphen latex

  $ fmtutil --showhyphen cont-en

The names language.dat, cont-usr.tex, language.def etc. are defined
in fmtutil.cnf. These files are searched along the search path for
the given format. That's why the result for lamed is different from the
result of latex.
