Yes, it's just what I asked for. As my knowledge is no so deep in the
source's nuances, I'll try to recapitulate:
1. web2c/kpathsea version uses texmf.cnf with the following:


which seems to be OK as default.

2. .;$TEXMF/tex4ht/base// contains specific for tex4ht stuff 
tex4ht.env configuration file, which can/should be configurable by the user 
and can be found a) in the working directory, then b) in the subdirectories 
tex4ht/base/ existing in (expanded) $TEXMF, but (as for kpathsea)
only first hit matches.

3. the only problem left is how to set i-records in tex4ht.env
to be configurable by the user and really read by tex4ht.
@texmf@/, kpatsea{TEXMF}/, ~~/ or some other notation should be adopted
and used in a consistent way in tex4ht.in (sources) and ready tex4ht.env.

Ps. Olaf, many thanks for extracting tex4htk for testing.
