Thanks, Norbert. My first guess was that you were right (you usually are, and it made a lot of sense to me.) But, sadly, the data says otherwise:

jrmMac 1: which fmtutil
jrmMac 2: sudo which fmtutil

I also tried this:
jrmMac 4: sudo fmtutil-sys --no-error-if-no-format --byengine pdftex
fmtutil: fmtutil: unknown option `--no-error-if-no-format'. Try fmtutil --help for help.

Any other thoughts or suggestions?
