In order to allow a Dropbox-based TeX suite to find the images it
requires on different systems with different Dropbox locations, I have
manually tweaked user-space "texmf.cnf" to re-define TEXINPUTS.xetex to
include a sub-directory of my Dropbox folder. However, in order to
avoid diagnostics from the run-time system I have had to manually copy
the value from system-space "texmf.cnf" into my user-space variant.
What I would /like/ to do is simply reference the system-space
definition, but the following :
leads to the following diagnostic from the run-time system :
warning: kpathsea: variable `TEXINPUTS' references itself (eventually).
and to overcome this I have to modify the above to :
Is there any supported way of referencing the system-space value of the
name as opposed to simply copying the value and appending ?
