tetex FC6


as a TeX user I very puzzled using TeX/LaTeX under FC6:

1- man is not up to date: it refers to initex (and some other init
scripts for TeX which no longer exist...)

2- as it took almost 10 seconds before latex begun to compile a file, I
used strace to see why.... and I discovered that latex was reading all
directories in my home dir to find the file it needed to compile my
(small) test file!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is more and more like M$ which search a file in all possible
directories instead of reading an uptodate database.

Don't understand why it is like this!

how to build babel format for latex, pdflatex and Co as initex and
pdfinitex no longer exist?

how to prevent TeX/Latex read all directories and subdirectories and
subsubdirectories and.... before compiling a file. In a word: how to set
the environment variables .....
