Thomas,

you must have introduced some error! As first guess. I upgraded one 
weekend ago to the *EXPERIMENTAL* tex i-Package and have these, 
according to the contents of the i-Package:

pete 386 /\ l /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/pdf*tex

As you see *I* am the owner of pdfetex, although I can swear a few 
oaths that it was admin who installed the software (and it's usually me 
who uses it). And then there are the pdfcslatex and pdfplatex 
sym-links, which I never ordered and which have inappropriate 
permissions set (and different dates too)! That pdfetex has a date 
earlier than that of my installation is OK, because that's the date 
when it was made by Gerben (and then packed into the new i-Package).

Could be there are bugs in i-Installer 2.70 or the tex i-Packages. 
Which tex i-Package and which i-Installer where you using when exactly?
