Has anyone received reports of the TeX installation for Mac OS X being 
broken by Panther?

After upgrading, my MAKEINDEX command does not work any longer, 
although everything else does. Here is what I get:

[metallic-hydrogen:~] eroche% cd Desktop
[metallic-hydrogen:~/Desktop] eroche% makeindex sample
Couldn't find input index file sample nor sample.idx.
Usage: makeindex [-ilqrcg] [-s sty] [-o ind] [-t log] [-p num] [idx0 
idx1 ...]
[metallic-hydrogen:~/Desktop] eroche%

That is for a sample file. I get the same error message if I use TeTex. 
Also, with iTexMac, the "I" button (for index) is greyed out?

Any ideas would be appreciated. If you need telnet access to my machine 
to look around, let me know.
