Move setting the path for texlive to the beginning of the chapter. This will mean that the fixups needed to get the 2015 source to work will not need to specify the PATH to fmtutil-sys and mtxrun, and is consistent with other packages where we use /opt.

18 <para>Before starting to build TeX Live, set up your PATH so
19 that the system can properly find the files. If you set up your login
20 scripts as recommended in <xref linkend='postlfs-config-profile'/>, update
21 the needed paths by appending to the
22 <filename>extrapaths.sh</filename> script. The programs are always
23 installed in an &lt;ARCH&gt;-linux subdirectory and on 32-bit x86 this is
24 always i386-linux. For x86_64 and i?86 we can generate this as $TEXARCH:
