See chapter 3 in the documentation of kpathsea. Remember that you may
have several files of the same name in different directories and
kpathsea selects the proper one according to format and engine. That's
why you cannot just set the generic TEXINPUT in texmf.cnf while the
specific TEINPUT.something is defined. It is not necesary to start a
new dosprompt after modifying texmf.cnf.
