Yes. Definitely. Please. Maybe you should wait for another Fink user to 
double-check. I tried to remove all previously installed files to test 
if the installer really puts things in its right place. But you could 
never be too sure.

I thought that (by default) TeX uses ordinary CM italic for math 
variables. But now I remember that italic letters are part of math 
fonts also.

Don't worry about it and continue to develop more important features. 
It's looking great.
