I have just installed the MacTeX-2007 package but when I run
latex from the terminal I get the following message;

warning: Could not open char translation file `cp8bit.tcx'.
This is e-TeX, Version 3.141592-2.1 (Web2C 7.5.2)
kpathsea: Running mktexfmt latex.efmt
fmtutil: unknown format type: latex.efmt.
I can't find the format file `latex.efmt'!

Have I neglected to do something important during the installation?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
