Dear list members,

I have to upgrade my old pdftex from 13d to 14f on a Linux 6.3 
machine with teTeX 1.0.

After downloading the precompiled linux archive from CTAN I have 
copied the files where the 13d binaries and pool files are located. 
texmf.cnf seems to be o.k., and I get:

root at anu:~ > kpsewhich pdftex.pool

But, if I try to build the format files pdfinitex cannot read the pool file:

root at anu:~ > fmtutil --byfmt pdftex
! I can't read pdftex.pool; bad path?
fmtutil: `pdftex -ini -fmt=pdftex -progname=pdftex pdftex.ini' failed.

I'm not able to understand that. The pool files are not corrupted.

Can anyone give me a hint, how to make things work?

Thanks in advance!
