Yes, in fact the teTeX package doesn't have the newest Web2C TeX 
version at all no matter what distro you pick. The i-Installer one is a 
mixture of teTeX (for the foundation) and a binary distro called 
TeX-live for the programs (tex, pdftex, dvips etc.). teTeX is the most 
popular package for *nix as far as I am aware, so it's rather odd that 
it's behind like this. And too bad. But at least it can be worked 
around on the mac.
