Thank you for your response. Unfortunately, when I run texconfig formats,
it screws up my terminal settings and appears to have no other effect. I
have to run the 'reset' command to restore my terminal to usability.

This is using the tetex rpms from Mandrake. I tried installing from source
- make worked fine, but make install died partway through, and also screwed
up my terminal settings in the same way that texconfig does.

Any clues?
