CTAN update: etex-pkg
Minor update to etex.sty so that it defines \globcount (to be \newcount) in the case that the extended registers are already being allocated and so the package quits with a warning.

Thanks for the upload. Sadly Peter Breitenlohner, a co-author of this package, died last year, an obituary showing the range of his contributions to science and TeX may be found here: https://www.mpp.mpg.de/mpg/websitePhysik/pdf/nachrufe/Peter_Breitenlohner_EN.pdf For the CTAN Team Erik Braun
etex-pkg – E-TeX support package
The package provides support for LaTeX documents to use many of the extensions offered by e-TeX; in particular, it modifies LaTeX’s register allocation macros to make use of the extended register range.
The etextools package provides macros that make more sophisticated use of e-TeX’s facilities.
