Why? Do you expect that files under the `latex' format
are found when running plain tex? No. So you should also expect that
files in the `plain' format first use files under

Simple bottom line: If you want to replace a file, make sure that you
place it in the very same hierarchy tree in TEXMFHOME or TEXMFVAR
(btw, TEXMFVAR is not really a good place for a cwebmac.tex replacement!)
and not somewhere else.
