    kpathsea: Running mktexfmt latex.fmt
    I can't find the format file `latex.fmt'!

In addition to Zdenek's good suggestions:

- Do you have any TeX-related environment variables set?
- If you run mktexfmt latex.fmt from the shell, what happens?
  The output of sh -vx mktexfmt latex.fmt might be illuminating.
