System: NetBSD 7.0 NetBSD 7.0 (GENERIC.201509250726Z) i386
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386
	xelatex called on xelatex-ex-tug.tex tries to build a xelatex.fmt file and fails with TeX memory capacity exceeded.  i18n and particularly Hebrew for me does not work.

	bash-4.3# cd /usr/pkgsrc/print/tex-xetex
	bash-4.3# make
	bash=4.3# make install

	Part of the output is below, find fails on searching for
	xelatex.log listed in the stdout/stderr.

! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [pattern memory=1000000].

mktexlsr: Done.

It is unknown where to make the change in teTeX/tex-xetex to
	increase the TeX memory to a sufficiently high value.  I will
	try anyway.
