teTeX on Linux is based on texmf.cnf files too. Look for these, if 
there are many of them. TEXMFLOCAL determines the local additions, 
HOMETEXMF determines the user's additions.

Try a comparison of these config files. In 
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/doc/tetex you will probably find 
TETEXDOC.* which will explain how teTeX is organised on Linux -- 
probably not much different than on Mac OS X!

You too could copy the whole gwTeX tree to Linux ... and tweak 
texmf.cnf on Linux a bit.
