[tex-live] Crash due SIGSEGV with make world, broken test in lacheck

without the attached patch I see two segmentation fault with etex
during tests performed by make world.  Also the check for lacheck
fails as the file test.old does not exist. And even if it would
exist, the test does not allow any difference between test.out
and test.old.

I should note that the change in texk/web2c/eptexdir/eptex.ech
is IMHO required to be able to run the checks as well as to
avoid an possible overflow.
