true. this was my own copy and I forgot to update it.

yes, I want to test another version of irix 6.5 binaries before
uploading them to tug.org.

texmf.cnf seems to be hardwired to the main tree. I added a copy of it to
the texmf-var tree and run the following test for the current site setup:
ls -l /opt/local/TeX/texmf-var/web2c/texmf.cnf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root other 26144 Mar 27 17:21 /opt/local/TeX/texmf-var/web2c/texmf.cnf
ls -l /opt/local/TeX/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root other 26144 Mar 19 18:06 /opt/local/TeX/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf
kpsewhich --expand-var '$TEXMFCNF'
texmf.cnf from texmf-var tree, the first one on the search path, is not found.
texmf.cnf in source.development is very useful, at least for testing.
