By the way: there is not a single texmf.cnf file, but multiple ones,  
read in sequence, overriding each other. A base configuration is  
installed somewhere rather deep in the texmf-tree, with another one  
provided to override those with private settings.

To further help Michel, we'll need the output of the 'env' command on  
the terminal, some environment variable may be set that interferes  
with TeX. If there are no environment variables set _and_ fink isn't  
present, then re-running i-Installer in the TeX i-package (just the  
configure phase) and re-applying the patch should be sufficient (and  
easiest to explain).
