If you have multiple i-Package TeX installs (say, /usr/local/teTeX  
and /usr/local/gwTeX) the support i-Packages will pick this up when  
you install them, but they won't nag you about it unless the  
situation changes.

You can force this dialog by resetting the i-Package to its default  
properties, but that is useless unless you have two i-Package  

I never got around to making the support i-Packages TL-install capable.
