It should work fine in an xterm. Nevertheless,
  fmtutil --edit; fmtutil --missing
should do the trick.

"make install" calls texconfig (in teTeX-1.0) and if that screws up your
terminal, something else must have been wrong. Did you really unpack the
texmf tarball at the right place? The easiest way to do it right is to
follow QuickInstall.

If you really want to use pdftex, you should switch to teTeX-beta
