[OS X TeX] Xdvi can't find fonts, keeps rebuilding them

I have Gerben Wierda's tetex installed via his i-installer.  It was
up-to-date as of a week ago or so.  I run MacOS X 10.2.1.  I also have xdvi
installed via fink.

 xdvi cannot seem to find existing pk fonts; it keeps trying to make new
ones.  I have run texconfig and done texhash, and xdvi seems to be reading
the ls-R files (checked with fs_usage).

I have also imported a number of files from /var/tmp to the
/usr/local/teTeX/... Tree using the command given in the texconfig FAQ.  I
have used texconfig to tell tex not to put fonts in /var/tmp.  This is what
I get:

wagner% xdvi sem-user.dvi &
[1] 218
[d189:doc/latex/seminar] wagner% kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode ljfour
--bdpi 600 --mag 1+57/600 --dpi 657 cmcsc10
mktexpk: /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/fonts/pk/public/cm/cmcsc10.657pk
already exists.
kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode ljfour --bdpi 600 --mag 1+437/600 --dpi
1037 cmcsc10
mktexpk: /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/fonts/pk/public/cm/cmcsc10.1037pk
already exists.

Etc, etc, etc.

I will appreciate any advice that you can give me.
