The binaries listed on the pdftex page are mirrored from 
the TeX Live Master tree. Is there a problem with binaries
or formats in the Master tree?

I'm wondering about latex as well:

 $ /home/tlprod/Master/bin/i386-linux/latex
 This is e-TeXk, Version 3.14159-2.1 (Web2C 7.4.5)
 %&-line parsing enabled.

why is latex symlinked to etex?
