[tex-live] Can't find the format file pdflatex.fmt

I just tried installing tex live on an Intel macbook.  I downloaded Tex
Live, mounted the iso, then ran install-tl.sh, and I chose the "minimal
scheme" for installation.  After I changed my path to include
/usr/local/texlive/2007/bin/i386-darwin, I tried to run pdflatex on a tex
file.  It couldn't find the file "pdflatex.fmt."  Google has a bunch of
results for "pdflatex.fmt" about the same problem, but none of them seem to
provide instructions that worked for this (maybe because it's a minimal
install).  How do I regenerate pdflatex.fmt?
