[tex-live] Permissions of texk/xdvik/xdvizilla are wrong.

The permissions of texk/xdvik/xdvizilla are 444 (read-only) and should
be 555 (read-and-execute).  The xdvi/Makefile.in contains this rule:

install-exec: @final_exec_name@
	$(SHELL) $(top_srcdir)/../mkinstalldirs $(bindir)
	$(INSTALL_LIBTOOL_PROG) @final_exec_name@ $(bindir)
	$(INSTALL_SCRIPT) xdvi-sh $(scriptdir)/@wrapper_script@
### fix wrong CVS permissions for shell script
	chmod +x $(srcdir)/xdvizilla
	$(INSTALL_SCRIPT) $(srcdir)/xdvizilla $(scriptdir)/xdvizilla

The "chmod +x $(srcdir)/xdvizilla" is a problem as it means a build
from read-only source fails; this should be changed.
