As I said, I work with the standalone distri?
And I thought, the binaries are from fptex, right?
And if both texexec.ini's are removed:

texexec complains: 

  warning: texexec.ini not found, try 'texexec --verbose'

(the same with texexec --verbose)

upps?

texexec (without parameters)

compiles cscite.bat! Why?

This works!

But next Problem:

pdfetex can not find pk-fonts.

I have written: 

PKFONTS = .;$TEXMF/fonts/pk//

in 'texmf.cnf'

font-file lies in

texmf-project/fonts/pk/ricoh/local/msl/msl50.pk

what else can I do?
