From a previous Unix installation of TeX, I have my own .pfb's,
psfonts.map, dvips prologues, tex inputs, etc., files that I would
like to retain and use.
I have installed TeX 9/2003 in its default configuration on my Mac OS
X 10.2.8 system. The default TeX appears to work correctly.
My question is: how do I override the TeX defaults for the above
files? I'm sure it's in the documentation, but I can't seem to find
it. I would think there are a few environment variables I could set
that would name user-local directories to be searched before the
system defaults. Is it that simple? Could you provide examples or
pointers to the relevant documentation?
