I looked around a bit in the archives, but I'm not sure which zip that
is, so I decided to go ahead and upgrade my whole tetex to 2.0.2.  I
went to pragma-ade and followed the links to find pdftex 14h. 

By the way, I am a little confused about the stable pdftex numbering
scheme (like 1.11a) and how it relates to the 14h numbering scheme.

I got the cont-tmf-20030925.zip and unpacked it in my texmf directory.
I copied each foo.pl file in context/perltk to ../bin/foo (no ".pl"
extension), made sure /opt/tetex-2.0.2/bin was in my $PATH, made sure
texexec.ini was there, ran fmtutil --edit to activate the context
formats, ran fmtutil --all to generate the formats.

OK, but texexec was just showing the usage.  I read the minstall.pdf
document to see if I missed anything, but I couldn't find anything.

Just to see what would happen, I then got pdftex 14h and unzipped it
in the bin dir, moving the pool files to texmf/web2c.  Then I did
mktexlsr and fmtutil --all, but I see this error message in the

  running `pdfetex -ini   -jobname=cont-en -progname=context *cont-en.ini' ...
  pdfetex: unrecognized option `-jobname=cont-en'
  Try `pdfetex --help' for more information.

  This is a summary of all `failed' messages and warnings:

  `pdfetex -ini  -jobname=mptopdf -progname=mptopdf mptopdf.tex' failed

I tried "texexec --make", but texexec is still just showing a usage
message and exiting.  The --verbose option doesn't change that.

Any suggestions or pointers would be most appreciated.
