If pacnew files appear (notably texmf.cnf and fmtutil.cnf), and the installation reports a failure in regenerating formats (which you will know by not being able to use an engine), you will need to handle the pacnew files, and run "fmtutil-sys --all" by hand.
What does 'handle the .pacnew' files mean - move them over the orig?
If this situation reaches a high level of absurdity, and if possible considering pacman's behaviour, new packages not behaving like this might be built later before going to [extra].
I'd vote for non-absurd behaviour sooner rather than later ... :-)
