Nope!  I did not see any mention of it in annoucemnents nor I have seen
any rpm packages for that version availalble for a download.

Seems to look pretty close to what I made myself with this exception
that I am not aware of Suse details and I just followed the
previous version.

I still think that an an addition to %pre I suggested would be a
good idea.

Indeed this is the case.

Except that it does not.  After doing an update with a package I
made, and which was missing that old %{startupfile} handler, I was
left with an old


everywhere I tried.  Obviously '[ $1 -eq 0 ]' condition is not
satisfied in the circumstances.  Besides you do not know.  An old
version could have been installed not via an rpm package and somebody
could have added there an extra code beyond "(require 'tex-site)" so
just clobbering it is not nice.  One can, and possibly should, spit
some explicit warnings if that file is found and renamed.
