Thanks, it works.  Thanks a lot indeed for your support.

So for the record: in order to use a custom format under TeXLive
(called hiptex, say) based on pdflatex, create an executable
'hiptex' containing these three lines

>  #!/bin/sh
>  test -f "`kpsewhich hiptex.fmt`" || fmtutil --byfmt hiptex
>  exec pdftex -fmt=hiptex -progname=pdftex ${1+"$@"}

and put it in ~/bin/
The format file 'hiptex.fmt' itself should be in ~/Library/texmf/web2c/
