Did you compile with:
and probably you also need
so that texmf-dist is searched in /usr/share/texmf-dist

kpse needs to find tan initial texmf.cnf file and searches for 
it in a set of compile time defaults. These defaults depend on
the above options as well as what is in 
in the sources

After it has found the initial texmf.cnf, everything can be 
overridden in the texmf.cnf, but finding the first one is a problem.
