Hello all,

I installed TL'17 on my Mac a few days ago ('vanilla' TL, not MacTeX). I
see that /usr/local/texlive/2017/texmf.cnf doesn't have any 'real'
content, whereas in previous years it has

    TEXMFHOME = ~/Library/texmf
    TEXMFVAR = ~/Library/texlive/2016/texmf-var
    TEXMFCONFIG = ~/Library/texlive/2016/texmf-config

i.e. adjusts the various variables to use the standard OS location for
these items. Is this change to be expected?
