I'm amazed at how difficult this is getting. I appreciate the help. I
was hoping not to have to become a TeX sys admin. Kind of tarnishes
the appeal of using TeX as an easy typesetting tool. I'll keep trying

How did you do that?

Sadly I just discovered that fink is how I installed teTeX years ago

$ fink list -i

(i)  tetex                  2.0.2-36         Complete distribution of
the TeX typesetting system
(i)  tetex-base             2.0.2-36         Base programs for a teTeX
(i)  tetex-shlibs           2.0.2-36         Shared libraries for a
teTeX installation
(i)  tetex-texmf            2.0.2-2          Main texmf tree for a
teTeX installation
(i)  texinfo                4.7-11           Texinfo documentation system

Is it a good idea that I just get rid of the fink install and do some
different install? Suggestions for this different install?
