[tex-live] share sub-directory

Between revision 6385 and 6514 something has happened, that makes my
texlive-build procedure fail. It's probably related to the fact, that I
copy the texmf-trees to the "prefix" instead of "prefix/share". So the
question is: Is the "share" sub-directory now mandatory, or is there a bug
in the build procedure?

Here are my commands to build texlive:

cd Master
mkdir /tmp/prefix
mv texmf texmf-dist texmf-doc /tmp/prefix
cd ../Build/source
mkdir work
cd work
../configure --prefix=/tmp/prefix --with-system-ncurses \
             --with-system-pnglib --with-system-t1lib \
             --with-system-zlib --with-system-gd \
             --with-system-freetype2 --with-system-icu \
             --with-system-freetype --disable-multiplatform
make world
find /tmp/prefix -name texmf.cnf
*** Result: /tmp/prefix/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf
kpsewhich -expand-var '$TEXMF'
*** Result:
latex test-file
*** Result:
This is pdfTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.40.5 (Web2C 7.5.6)

I can't find the format file `latex.fmt'!

Kind regards, Peter
