No, I didn't remove any files (why should I?) and I didn't touch the 
teTeX installation
(at least not deliberately). Also, all files like supp-pdf.tex and 
supp-mis.tex appeared to be in place.
It is also strange that I detected the same error on two computers (at home and
at work). Re-running the thin dedicated i-Installer didn't cure the problem.
But thanks to Bruno Voisin's hints I know that the problem is with my 
installation only.
So I used the radical method: I removed usr/local/teTeX-folder completely,
downloaded the fat i-Installer, and installed everything from the 
very beginning.
Now it works again.

Thank you,
