fmtutil log

Description of problem:
On a newly installed and updated ROSA Desktop Fresh R1, installation of texlive-collection-latex fails from time to time when 'fmtutil' runs (I suspect it happens when a dependent package, texlive-latex.bin is being installed).

After that event, the most simple TeX documents (see the example: http://bugs.rosalinux.ru/show_bug.cgi?id=2168) cannot be processed due to missing latex.fmt.

The output of fmtutil is attached. One of the notable errors:
! I can't find file `dehypht-x-2012-05-30.tex'.

Error: `pdftex -ini  -jobname=pdfetex -progname=pdfetex -translate-file=cp227.tcx *pdfetex.ini' failed

How reproducible: occasionally. When I remove all texlive packages and then install them again, the errors occur much more rarely.

Could you point me to a log where such an error with dehypht-x-2012-05-30.tex occurs? Can't find such a log at fba by myself, but maybe I am looking at the wrong place...

The logs for the new test runs should appear on FBA soon.

When I run latex on the same file manually on ROSA Fresh x64, I see a different error now:

$ latex test.tex 
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.4-1.40.13 (TeX Live 2012/Mandriva)
 restricted \write18 enabled.

kpathsea: Running mktexfmt latex.fmt
tcfmgr: config file `tcfmgr.map' (usually in $TEXMFMAIN/texconfig) not found (ls-R missing?).
fmtutil: config file `fmtutil.cnf' not found.
I can't find the format file `latex.fmt'!

However, fmtutil.cnf and tcfmgr.map are present and readable:

If I run 'fmtutil --all' as root now, the error again is as follows:
tcfmgr: config file `tcfmgr.map' (usually in $TEXMFMAIN/texconfig) not found (ls-R missing?).
fmtutil: config file `fmtutil.cnf' not found.
