About the "=" sign. This might be of no help but I use

pdflatex -output-format dvi blah.tex

with no "=" sign. This resembles more the man page and works for me.
However, the man page also tells us to

pdflatex -src-specials cr,display,hbox,math,par,parent,vbox blah.tex

but this does not work for me: instead I have to use

pdflatex -src-specials=cr,display,hbox,math,par,parent,vbox blah

with the "=" sign

Mystery and bubble gums
