Default texlive-2009 pdflatex doesn't work (sometimes)

I have two F12 systems with texlive-2009 installed. On one of them,
pdflatex works fine. On the other, I get this error:

$ pdflatex simple.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (Web2C 2009)

kpathsea: Running mktexfmt pdflatex.fmt
I can't find the format file `pdflatex.fmt'!

On the working system, pdflatex.fmt is in
${HOME}/.texlive2009/texmf-var/web2c/pdftex/pdflatex.fmt, but on the
failing system, that file is missing.

Reinstalling and rerunning texconfig doesn't help.

Any idea what's going on?

TIA.

In a slightly related issue, I found that after I did the most recent
updates from texlive (yesterday), xelatex and bibtex segfaulted
immediately. "yum reinstall texlive-xetex* texlive-bibtex*" seems to
have fixed it though ...

Wow! Now, why did that work but yum erase texlive (which removed all
texlive* packages), yum install texlive (which resintalled them all)
didn't?

After updating I get this:

$ bibtex
bibtex: Symbol `kpse_def_inst' has different size in shared object, consider
re-linking
bibtex: Need exactly one file argument.
Try `bibtex --help' for more information.

Reinstalling texlive-bibtex as you suggested fixed the issue:

$ bibtex
bibtex: Need exactly one file argument.
Try `bibtex --help' for more information.

Can't say I've seen any of these problems (except my original one), but
I did notice that after reinstall, I get various complaints about
consistency of files cached in $HOME/.texlive-2009/. Deleting the
directory seems to solve those.
