Without -L it would be correct. Provided you left the target away on
purpose. And provided you misspelled the source too on purpose (it's
rather texmf.gwtex, or .).
IMO it's more appropriate to copy the fattened i-Packages to a place on
the laptop, or make them available for the laptop over the network or
from CD-RW for a real installation. Then you teach i-Installer on the
laptop to take the i-Packages from this 'local' reservoir, the
directory where to save the data fetched from the sites.
When you copy over the whole tree it can happen that some (extra) files
on the (older) target are not substituted -- because there's no
pendant, no counterpart, for them in the newer release. The
installation step removes them first ...
Or do you think of copying the whole teTeX?! Then you should take care
of the user id of the one who installed the software. The same user
with the same id should exist on the laptop too.
When confronted with actual numbers, a mathematician is at a loss.
