symlink it's the magic word...
Yes, the error happened when I copied latest pdfetex and pdftex:
pdftex is symbolic link to pdfetex.
I was so stupid to remade copy until i didn't read your answer...

Now all it's ok.

Many thanks Taco


What do you think about to write a dense guide to programmer on how to add
a pdftex primitive (something like \pdfhelloworld) and how to interface 
to an
external libray (like zlib) ?
I think that this will fill a hole in documentations.
