Dear all,

although TeXlive 2016 is frozen, I need assistance with the following
situation: I am trying to install a local version of 'cwebmac.tex', but
TeX picks up a different variant.

'kpsewhich cwebmac.tex' correctly reports:

'kpsewhich -a cwebmac.tex' lists three variants:

However, when I run 'tex url.tex', I get this:
This is TeX, Version 3.14159265 (TeX Live 2016) (preloaded format=tex)
(./url.tex (/opt/texlive/2016/texmf-dist/tex/plain/cweb/cwebmac.tex) *1
! Undefined control sequence.
l.5 You can send e-mail to \pdfURL

(The missing macro is defined in my local 'cwebmac.tex'.)

Happy Easter,
