I do not want to upgrade until I am sure that everything works. Now
after recreating the fmt files I can process the files both by TL2007
and TL2008 depending on the PATH setting. I think that the problem
could be solved if the installation script put the TL2008 bin
directory to the beginning of path for running fmtutil.
