texlive +basic +letter "sh: texconfig-sys: command not found"

Reported by: jjstickel (Jonathan Stickel) Owned by: drkp (Dan Ports)

Port: texlive


I tried installing texlive +basic +letter and got this error during the activate phase:

:debug:activate system: texconfig-sys paper letter
:info:activate sh: texconfig-sys: command not found
:info:activate Command failed: texconfig-sys paper letter

After some investigating and trial and error, I found that texconfig-sys is provided by texlive-bin-extra, so installing that first resolved the problem. So, should the letter variant add that as a dependency? Or have the letter variant require the medium variant (which does have texlive-bin-extra as a dependency)?

Or maybe just remove the letter variant and suggest the letter-setting config command in a note?
