Description oliver.hensel 1999-03-24 00:19:10 UTC
instead of searching for texmf.cnf in /usr/share/texmf/web2c
in looks in /usr/lib/texmf/web2c
the problem seems to be with TEXMFMAIN not get properly set

I included your change in tetex-1.0.1-2. It *almost* worked,
but left me with texmf.cnf line
	TEXMFMAIN = $SELFAUTOPARENT/share/texmf
that I needed to change to
	TEXMFMAIN = $SELFAUTODIR/share/texmf

(There were some other backward compatibility texmf.cnf problems
issues also so the package carries its own copy rather than installing
the generated file).
