There is no pdfetex any more, only pdftex; therefore no pdfetex.pool
I don't know how the -pl pool files are maintained or installed;
they're not created as a result of a normal build. tex.pool probably
hasn't changed in the past year, but for pdftex, at least, a new
version would be needed.
Also don't really know about the .cnf/.cfg files, but I suspect
they're hand-maintained in Master/texmf rather than being built and
installed by "make install" from the Build/source tree. The "texmf"
that gets created by the makefile (in Build/source/inst by default)
isn't really used as such, AFAIK.
