[tex-live] [NTG-pdftex] Fwd: Rebuilding pdftex gives ---! Must increase the hyph_size (Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)

    My solution was to drop the pdftex binary I've compiled in

Please don't expect a random TeX binary to work with a random TeX tree.

If you want to use TL'08, install TL'08.  If you have TL'08 installed
/some/where, then put your new pdftex into its tree:
/some/where/bin/i386-linux/pdftex (move the original aside, of course).

Your original message was about .fmt file mismatches.  Delete your .fmt
files created with previous versions of TL'08 and let them be recreated.
We had to make changes that changed the .fmt's during the last round of
bug fixes.

Hope this helps.
