Although I don't recommend touching either one the one in /usr/local/texlive/2010/ is the only one that could be touched since it contains any changes in configuration from the standard base configuration for the local system. The main texmf.cnf file is in /usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf-dist/ and is read in first. It has the lines you are interested in changing (by adding corrected lines to the other texmf.cnf file) so examine its contents.

Ok, thanks for that information.

No, I did not so understand. On the other hand, I had no intention of modifying <texmf.cnf> until I knew more about the situation. I have to find that message from Bruno Voisin that Alain Schremmer referred to.
