[tex-live] kpsewhich --format=texmfscripts for texexec

Hans, I'm sorry to say that the texexec currently checked into TL fails
at startup, because it can't find texexec.ini or .rme.  This is because
texexec.pl says:

my $IniPath = `$kpsewhich --format="scripts" -progname=context texexec.$suffix` ;

It should be --format=texmfscripts.  Sorry.
(I didn't look for other occurrences.)

Not sure if other programs might be in the same boat, hence sending to
the list.


P.S. Also, texexec.rme starts with the statement "this is texexec.ini",
which is rather confusing :).
