Hi Karl,

> I changed the pdftex version to 1.40.23 for this. It also includes two

Unfortunately that was not a good idea, now we need to update all the
other engines, too:

After updating the 64bit version and building a format with 32bit
pdftex, I get when running the 64bit one:

[~] pdflatex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.141592653-2.6-1.40.23 (TeX Live 2021) (preloaded format=pdflatex)
 restricted \write18 enabled.
---! /home/norbert/tl/2021/texmf-var/web2c/pdftex/pdflatex.fmt made by different executable version
(Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)

So we (*) either keep the version number or (*) rebuild all binaries ...
