Ok, fixed in install-tl now, it is not calling fmtutil-sys --all again
if tlmgr paper letter was called before ...

Thanks for spotting that.

FRANT (n.)
Measure. The legal minimum distance between two trains on the District
and Circle line of the London Underground. A frant, which must be not
less than 122 chains (or 8 leagues) long, is not connected in any way
with the adjective 'frantic' which comes to us by a completely
different route (as indeed do the trains).
