[tex-live] Problem with XeTeX and fc-cache on Tex Live Portable

Thanks it works. I've added them into tl-portable.bat.

Now another question: in the file fonts.conf, can I use relative path? I aim
to keep some fonts on Usb disk and not scanning c:\windows\fonts, yet, the
absolute path of this portable version may vary (be it g:\texlive\ or
k:\texlive) when I plug it into different computers. So something like
will not work any where.

I tried to jump back from the directory of fonts.conf like this
but it doesn't work (neither slash nor anti-slash).
