Dear Akira -- Thank you for your prompt reply. I am very happy to
accept that (for my system) the search path for TeXMF.cnf is correct,
but I am still very unclear why the rule-set that you enumerate is
logical. For example, and assuming that all binaries are in :
Why might there be a "share" under /bin/win32 ?
Why might there be a texmf-local/texmf-dist/texmf under /bin/win32
Why does the configuration assume that there will be a "texmf-local" at
all, given that the user can specify (e.g.,) /TeX/Live/TeXMF/Local as
the local equivalent of "texmf-local" at installation time.
And so on ...
