Hi Karl,

I have a kind of auxiliary question [probably not important enough to 
create another topic]

When I was fiddling with the texmf.cnf at the top of texlive/2010,
I thought that it would be better for my modifications to be in 

however kpsewhich does not find copies I created in texlive/texmf-local

~% ls /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/texmf*

~% kpsewhich --all texmf.cnf

Wouldn't it be better if one could put a texmf.cnf in texmf-local?

Incidentally, in the end, and regarding my initial post, I have decided
not to change TEXDOCS, but rather simply to put everything in texmf-doc 

(so my frenchb2-doc.pdf is now in /texmf-local/doc/doc/ and is found by 

best regards,
