I'm still investigating why mptopdf format cannot be generated
(it is the same for various platforms and installation schemes)
1. fmtutil.cnf
mptopdf  pdfetex - mptopdf.tex
seems OK.
2. texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf is also OK.
3. mptopdf.tex loaded, but it doesn't reference to pdftex.cfg
4. but...
This is pdfeTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.11a-beta-20030731-2.1 (Web2C 7.5.2)
(INITEX)  3 AUG 2003 02:38
 %&-line parsing enabled.
Error: pdfetex (file pdftex.cfg): cannot open config file
 ==> Fatal error occurred, the output PDF file is not finished!

5. pdftex.cfg can be found in texmf/pdftex/config/ and also
in texmf-var/pdftex/config/
6. fmtutil --byfmt=mptopdf after installation also failed.

What's wrong?
