Bah.  Still, if you have the whole texlive upgrade, we should apply it!

We haven’t heard from dev-luatex yet.  I think we should go with this
workaround for now (those build failures are frequently preventing
evaluations at <https://ci.guix.gnu.org/jobset/core-updates> from
completing, which is a real bummer).  Does using ‘pdftex’ rather than
‘luatex’ have an impact on the output of these packages?
