The relative location of the texmf.cnf file with respect to the binaries
is non-standard in SuSE (it complies with some Linux standard, but this
is not what teTeX usually expects). That is the reason why the binaries
you use do not find the texmf.cnf file.

Solution: add the line
  export TEXMFCNF=`kpsewhich -show-path=.cnf`
somewhere (e.g. your .bashrc or /etc/profile).
