Your initial surmise is correct, Herb :

but it was not an install-time option.  I make a point of
reserving C: for the operating system, and all data files
live on D (as does the entire TeX hierarchy, since it
sadly makes no distinction twixt program and data and
expects to find its data based on relative paths from
the executable ...).
