The cause seems the old configuration files under $PREFIX/share/texmf-var.
In particular, this problem can be triggered when WITH_LETTERSIZE=YES was
specified in teTeX-2.x or texconfig(1) was used manually after
the installation. Also, portupgrade does not work in this case.
To determine if you have this problem, try "ls /usr/local/bin/pdftex"
("/usr/local" should be replaced if you specified $PREFIX during
the installation). If the file exists, the installation was done
successfully. If not, the teTeX package in your system is still broken.
As mentioned earlier, the installation fails when some old files
in teTeX-2.x existed.
To fix this, you have to follow the procedure described in the following
URL and reinstall print/teTeX:
Anyway, I will add a workaround to prevent this problem into
the teTeX ports soon. If you still have other problems, please
let me know. Thanks.
