Installs fine here (2005 Devel). Two remarks:

1. The problem connected with use of a pdftexconfig.tex containing  
the deprecated command \pdfoptionpdfminorversion is still there  
(yielding warnings in the TeX log console in TeXShop). There are such  
two files installed:

- one /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/tex/generic/config/ 
pdftexconfig.tex from 9 July 2004;

- another /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/tex/generic/config/ 
pdftexconfig.tex from 10 March 2004, containing the deprecated  
\pdfoptionpdfminorversion but taking precedence (given its location  
inside texmf.gwtex).

There is no pdftexconfig.tex created inside texmf.local. If I  
remember correctly what Herb Schulz said, for the 2004 install, a  
copy is created there without \pdfoptionpdfminorversion.

2. For those using Adam Maxwell's DVIImporter.mdimporter, after a new  
TeX install the command "mdimport -f /usr/local/teTeX" needs to be re- 
run I suppose. In case the importer is planned to become a standard  
part of the Mac OS X TeX install, would it be worth to include this  
command at the end of the install stage?
