Sounds good to me. I've changed this in the code, and it seems to  
work fine on my system. Of course, it worked for me previously, too,  
but let's hope this works better on other configurations.

(I have a vague idea that maybe there weren't as many of these  
variables defined, back when this was first written; or the texmf  
structure has changed, or something.... I think there was a reason  
for the way it was done, but at this point your proposal looks like  
the right thing to do.)
