After a manual compile, you have to make the format file with
the -i switch ("initex"), somewhat thusly (consult your README):
tex -i plain.tex
type \dump at the prompt
when it's done, mv plain.fmt to the right directory.
Then repeat the process with
tex -i latex.tex
tex -i pdflatex.tex
Some systems actually have an initex binary for this
rather than using tex -i...but I haven't bothered to
do this manually for years since the TeX Live releases
came out and the RPMs became available for Linux.
