[tex-live] ifxetex package missing from collection-xetex

I guess it's way too late to rebuild anything at this point?

Having at last had a chance to download an .iso test image and  
install a "typical" scheme (usually, I just run from a subversion  
checkout), I found that the ifxetex package was not included,  
although xetex and various associated packages were present. This  
leads to a failure with packages such as fontspec, which use  
ifxetex.sty to check the engine.

I suppose the "correct" thing to do would be to define ifxetex as a  
dependency of fontspec, xltxtra, and any other packages that require  
it; but a simpler workaround would be to add ifxetex explicitly to  
collection-xetex. If there will be another rebuild of the packages  
for any reason, I'd like to see this fixed.
