FWIW, one can not dump LaTeX on a virgin system (say D. E. Knuth
engines and fonts) if the following 4 tfm files are missing:


For required/graphics, the driver dvips.def is not anymore generated
by graphics-drivers.ins: it has to be get from contrib/graphics-def.
(Not a problem for me, I know where to find it; but it could be 
mentioned in the doc.)

Neither ltxcheck nor sample2e.tex can be processed if the EC fonts are
missing (required?).

On a side note (since core babel is required): could you tell the babel
developers to correct babel.ins in order to not provoke an unnecessary
overwrite check by docstrip, because "babel.log" is also used as the
output name of a file created as a side effect. Namely, in:

% Dummy, it just read "modules" to be used when generating
% the actual file. There must be a better way.

replace babel.log by dummy.log, for example (this is what I do by ed'ing
or sed'ing the file; but the less custom processing, the better ;)
