I have a rather old Linux box at the moment and I can confirm that Benjamin
has indeed found the problem.  Here are the first few lines of fancybox.sty
on my Linux setup - read them and be amazed!

%% BEGIN fancybox.sty
% DG/SR modification begin - May 16, 1997
\providecommand\@begindvi{} % For rather old versions of LaTeX 2e
% Problem FancyBox 1.0 <-> LaTeX 2e with the \fancyput macro
% The following line solve several problems in `fancybox' macros,
% but has the bad side effect to inhibit the table of contents generation.
% If you really need the TOC, try to comment next line and to recompile.
% But if it doesn't work, there is no currently known solution in this case.
\newcount\c at tocdepth
% DG/SR modification end
% DG/SR modification begin - Feb. 27, 1997
% Now defined only in latex209.def

You really should update, or get your system manager to update the TeX
installation.  Failing that or in the meantime, get a updated copy of
fancybox.sty (and anything else you use while you're at it and put them in
your working directory), you can find all you need on CTAN:
