I have several machines, most of them with Linux, one Mac and I might also
use it on Windows where symlinks do not work. For thsi reason my
texmf-local lives on subversion (git can be used as well) so that I can
update it on all my computers from a central repository. And, of course,
mktexlsr is important ufter udate.
