Sorry for bothering everybody, it was my mistake. The variable is o.k. 
What happened is that when I copied my home folder to the server, the 
Finder obviously skipped some files. The texmf folder was copied, but 
not all subdirectories!? So some of the required files were missing. I 
copied them, and everything works fine now.

Sorry, once again.
