texlive issues

While trying to rebuild VirtualBox against libpng-1.5 it failed with
some misleading message in %install (missing VBox.png). 

I narrowed it down to pdflatex call:
$ cd ~/rpm/BUILD/VirtualBox-4.1.8_OSE
$ ./kBuild/bin/linux.amd64/kmk_redirect -w+ti /dev/null -C out/linux.amd64/release/obj/manual/en_US -- pdflatex -halt-on-error -interaction batchmode UserManual.tex
This is pdfTeXk, Version 3.1415926-1.40.9 (Web2C 7.5.7)
%&-line parsing enabled.
pdflatex: fatal: Could not undump 1 4-byte item(s).

After some google-fo I run `sudo fmtutil-sys --all' and it helped. 
VirtualBox builds now, so does vice (this one fails aon texi2dvi call).

Are we missing fmtutil-sys call somewhere in texlive-*'s %post ?
