Hi Martin - yes, it's a deficiency that the warnings from mktexlsr (aka
texhash; makes no difference which is used) were not shown. (They're
written to the log file, but admittedly no one is likely to look there.)

We can fix that. But meanwhile, I have a separate question for you:

It seems strange that the ls-R file is (apparently) intentionally
unwritable, but the directories into which new packages are installed
are (apparently) writable.

Can you describe the situation you're actually trying to support with
that setup?
