Okay - now I've had a closer look, I think I'd much rather set up my own
local texmf tree, so I can keep all my bits segregated from `everything
else'.  It'd make managing the mess easier from my point of view.

I think that does mean I need to edit /usr/local/teTeX/texmf.cnf.

Now, I still can't find anything to explain the syntax of the entries in
that file.  What *think* I'd like to do is just add another parallel
texmf tree:


duplicating the structures found in (e.g.)

Is that `not mad', and if so, erm, how do I do it?

btw, need I be concerned about the appearance of





(and other similar duplications)


Anyone got any hints?
