Hi Reinhard,

> configure complains that the texmf tree is not found.  In the Build

The Build script is just good enough to ensure that everything is compiled
and that the bin directory is set up correctly.

For a "real" installation from the sources, one should pass a --prefix
such that $prefix/share/texmf-dist, $prefix/share/texmf etc. exist.
