Dvips.dvi is the dvi manpage for dvips.1 (am I wrong ?)

Yes, and they would need some rewriting.

Same as fptex doc : they are generated at the same place in my build
tree. I'm still working on the texsetup.exe program, but I hop that
next week most of this will be sorted out. I have one whole free week
to work on this.

I'll have a look at this. Maybe perl can automate the process ?

For the moment, texsetup is intended to install programs on your
machine with the following configuration _by default_ :
root dir :
(maybe we should stick to c:/TeX ?)
Modify environment :
Build a texmf.local tree in %TEXLIVE%/texmf.local
Copy/edit texmf.cnf to texmf.local/web2c/texmf.cnf
HOMETEXMF will be added if HOME is set or under NT (but frankly, I'd
prefer not to deal with HOMETEXMF under Windows !)
TEXMFDBS = $TEXMF
mktex.cnf will be edited to reflect the mfmode and bdpi of the
default printer, and the use of varfonts.
Copy (maybe edit) various configuration files : dvips/config/config.ps,
pdftex/config/pdftex.cfg, tex4ht configuration file to $TEXMFLOCAL
These are the default values, but you can customize various locations.
My goal is that anything in $TEXMFMAIN can be removed/updated from
scratch without loosing the user configuration.
Any other suggestion welcome.
