VARTEXMF and TEXMFLOCAL mostly have the same role. The only difference
is under Unix where you can expect /usr/local/... to hold static files
and /var/... to allow creation/removal of files. There is no such
difference under windows. So my intention was to use TEXMFLOCAL for
all local configuration and make VARTEXFONTS point to
$TEXMFLOCAL/fonts . There is no use for VARTEXMF under windows. Maybe
for completeness, VARTEXMF should point to $TEXMFLOCAL.
Thanks for any other comment,
