latex problems

In default installation latex eats all available memory when trying to compile 
a simple file. Issuing these two commands works around the problem:
$ sudo ln -s /var/lib/texmf/web2c/latex.fmt /usr/share/texmf/web2c/latex.fmt
$ sudo ln -s /var/lib/texmf/web2c/pdflatex.fmt /usr/share/texmf/web2c/pdflatex.fmt
Why are those two files in /var/... when latex and pdflatex command search for 
them in /usr/...?
