This made me smile, as it shows how old tetex really is
already. From the Texlive ChangeLog comes this:

    Tue Mar 24 19:20:13 1998

    * mp.web: New upstream source from John Hobby: version 0.641.

    Thu Jan 29 16:08:10 1998

    * mp.web, dvitomp.web: Version 0.64, from John Hobby

That's almost ten years ago!

But are you sure they did run without errors? It is not abnormal
(but often lamentable) for metapost & tex to generate errors
even if it knows how do the 'right thing' in the output.

Best wishes,
