Hi Karl!

There are some pool files in texmf/web2c which are:
- never created in the compile process
- are installed
- are not related to any binary AFAIS

These are:
(wiht pdfetex.pool I am not sure whether we need it for the link...)

But the two -pl files are really strange to my eyes.

I suggest:
- removing the stuff
- removing pdfetex-pl.pool from the texmf/tpm/bin-pdftex.tpm (2 times,
  one time in the pattern, one time in the runfiles)
- removing tex-pl.pool from the texmf/tpm/bin-tex.tpm (2 times,
  one time in the pattern, one time in the runfiles)

I can do this ... but I need the ok from one of the -pl gurus and/or

Best wishes
