utf8.def was not part of teTeX 2.0.2 (TL2003) but is part of TL2004 and 
teTeX 3. In the past I had my own copy of unicode stuff to be added to 
gwTeX, these days I draw it from TL (so theTL2003 setup gets the newer 
unicode stuff). I do this with other packages to, so TL2003 is 
basically TL2003 but some stuff (especially in the texmf tree) is 
newer. This generally is only an improvemen (see TL2003 as TL2003+).

This problem is not very easy for me to solve and is the first time I 
run into a problem with new+old which may force me to complicate the 
TeX i-Package a bit more...

Just curious: why do you use TL2003?
