Hi all,

I'm struggling with a new installation here on my MacBook. One  
problem I have is that mptopdf bails out when I have textext code in  
my mpgraphics. There were a couple of similar problems in the mailing  
list a while back, but no real solution. When I compare the  
mpgraph.log output from this new install with the output from a good  
installation, these are the diffs I get:

-write0 = `test-mpgraph.mpo'.
-write0 = `test-mpgraph.mpt'.

-1 output file written: test-mpgraph.1

 From what I've understood, metapost seems to be calling the wrong  
text (tex instead of texexec), but where can this be fixed? The  
configuration on both installations is identical (write 18 enabled,  
identical cont-sys.tex).
