I have three of them:

-rw-r--r--  1 Admin  admin  200  5 Jul 10:28 
-r--r--r--  1 root   admin  312 10 Mar  2004 
-rw-r--r--  1 pete   pete   200  9 Jul  2004 

They come from two sources: tex.ii2/tex.19.tar.bz2 has the 200 B twice, 
tex.ii2/tex.4.tar.bz2 has the 312 B twice.

Now looking into the report I see:

.../texmf.local/tex/generic/config/pdftexconfig.tex gets generated 
whenever a format is being built.  
.../texmf.tetex/tex/generic/config/pdftexconfig.tex probably is the 
fall-back ressource, or a remains, because owned by me (Admin is doing 
the installation)! And 
.../texmf.gwtex/tex/generic/config/pdftexconfig.tex is probably 
fine-adjusting PDF creation, setting the PDF version number ...

The reason could be that the pdfetex binary is compiled for Tiger and 
for Panther, Jaguar and below. Could be that Apple's PDF support 
changed between the Panther and Tiger, so you get this notion because 
the binary is using functions from your modernized frameworks, and I 
get something different ...
