The only installation dependent file I'm aware of is hyperref.cfg 
(loading the default driver set). I don't think that Gerben changed 
that from the default.

Install hyperref in your local or private tree and try it, you can then 
always revert back to what Gerben delivered. However, when Gerben (or 
rather teTeX updates), be sure to remember that you did install a 
different version into your local or private tree. You may then need to 
remove it to use the new version in the main tree.

teTeX isn't on the fastest update cycle, and regularly falls behind a 
few versions on important packages. I'm sure a new tree will be 
released shortly to get back in sync with the New LaTeX companion.
