Close. I use what make install produces next to other texmf trees
(amongst others teTeX's texmf tree which is then in texmf.tetex).
Besides, I think everybody will use some data files (like the .pool
files which are closely related to the binaries after all).
The reason is that I need to be able to update binaries (and support
for binaries) and foundation (texmf) separately.
