Sorry, I get the feeling it is the other way around. The ones I found  
differ between TL2003 and TL2004 and are both created by "make install"  
and are independent from Master.  The one in Master for instance does  
not have TEXMFDIST (while this is how the Master structure is today).  
It seems more to me that the one in Master is less updated than the one  
in source.development. Oh, and /var/tmp does not exist on every unix...

Anyway, does anybody have a problem with me changing texmf.in so that  
it has font_max as it was in TL2003? Because I do use the one from  
source(.development) like teTeX does afaik.
