Hi Conny,

I have now analyzed the code and I do NOT understand how that
can happen ...

In this case, there *should* be a link
	/usr/local/bin/kpsewhich -> 
If this link (in fact /usr/local/bin/kpsewhich) is found, it
is used to expand
and use that for the module path.

So the only way that the above does not work is that you do NOT have
the kpsewhich link.

Can you please check?

I could reproduce your problem by *only* linking tlmgr into /usr/local/bin.
In this case I get the same error. But when linking both tlmgr and 
kpsewhich, all works out well.

Please confirm.
