Thanks, didn't occurred to me, that I need to rm -rf
also /var/lib/texmf. It's working now :) When you'll do the upgrade in
Fedora proper, it might be a good idea to clear /var/lib/texmf then (via
the packages)...

Thanks, that did the job. I noticed during the time I tried to make
csplain working that removing and re-adding the texlive-csplain package
adds to this file lots of garbage which make csplain format generation
not working... You'll get lines like:

csplain pdftex - -extex -translate-file=cp227.tcx cslatex.ini pdftex -
-extex -translate-file=cp227.tcx cslatex.ini and so on

Would be worth fixing, even though it's a corner case...

Anyway, after installing some (which looked like I'd might need them)
collections and texlive-bbm, I was able to successfully build my
Bachelors' thesis (it's about general relativity, and it uses pretty
pretty much everything I've ever tried with TeX, so the coverage is
rather good), so I can say that (cs)plain (utf8) works in TexLive 2009
well.
