In addition to what Han-Wen suggested (a font generation
command), you could also try

>> latex sample2e
  Prints out some lines and generates files files sample2e.{dvi,log,aux}

>> xdvi sample2e
  Shows a 3 page document on the screen

>> dvips sample2e
  generates a postscript file

set the environment variable CXXFLAGS to '-I/usr/local/teTeX/include'
and LDFLAGS to '-L/usr/local/teTeX/lib', remove config.cache and
rerun configure. (Didn't I tell you to set these variables?)
