I find a lot of “setfontdimen” instances in texmf-dist/tex/fontinst/,
including the “mathetx” sub-directory.  There is also
“texmf-dist/tex/lualatex/lualatex-math”, which may be of some use when
lualatex is involved.

For the modular texlive we only have “texlive-tex-fontinst-base”, which
is only for the “base” sub-directory.  Turns out we’re building fontinst
wrong.  There is “texmf-dist/source/fontinst/base/fontinst.ins”, which
is a source package.  Currently, we just copy the pre-generated “base”
sub-directory as if there were no sources.

We should change that, but we have the minor problem that we probably
cannot use the texlive-build-system here as texlive-tex-fontinst-base is
a dependency of texlive-base.  We may have to build the ins file
“manually” or define a new “texlive-fontinst” package that uses
“texlive-tex-fontinst-base” in its bootstrap graph (via the

What do you think?
