Well, all that were control characters from texconfig, but the final
Could not find default config file for dvipdfm (config).
which differs slightly from that one you've got.

That makes we wondering: before you had on your system libkpathsea3
2.0.2-22 and after the reinstall too (at least, if you hadn't a
completely broken installation, like in #253417).
So, the only reason I could see, was a missing ldconfig run. Or
you've changed something during your playings, you're not aware of.

Well, just because the installation of your tetex-bin fails doesn't
mean, that there are the same reasons for that....
EOD, I'd say,
