Description: 'texconfig' requires the 'dialog' package to run. If 'dialog' is not installed, running 'texconfig' gives the intro message and then silently fails.

Additional info:
* package version: 2013.33063-1

Steps to reproduce:
1.) Install 'texlive-core' (or via the 'texlive-most' group)
2.) Ensure 'dialog' is not installed.
3.) Run 'texconfig' and press Enter after the intro message appears.
4.) Note that the terminal window gets cleared and a fresh command prompt is displayed. No error message is displayed.
5.) Install the 'dialog' package.
6.) Re-run step 3.
7.) The 'texconfig' program now runs normally.
