it works if you run it from the Master/texmf/asymptote directory
(or if you use the "-cd /path/to/Master/texmf/asymptote" option).
i don't know how it is supposed to find its runtime files in the texmf tree.
stracing shows that it looks for plain.asy
1) in the current dir
2) in ~/.asy/
3) in /usr/local/share/asymptote/
also, it reads the config file config.asy.asy in the same locations.
maybe it is possible to set the lookup path in ~/.asy/config.asy.asy
and point it to the TL2009's Master/texmf/asymptote dir.
