Did you document your way, your changes?

The file, /usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf.cnf, is created and this line is inserted by MacTeX 2013.

Just change the value of TEXMFCONFIG to point to your library.

The original texmf.cnf file contains

	file_line_error_style = f

with "f" standing for false. So put into /usr/local/texlive/2013/texmf.cnf that line:

	file_line_error_style = t

If you continue to see the reported failures it might be necessary to refresh all FMT files.

The AUCTeX documentation states for version 11.83 and newer releases:

	TeX error messages of the -file-line-error kind are now understood in AUCTeX and preview-latex (parsers are still separate).

So it should work with both settings. Another option is to run the TeX binaries with -no-file-line-error or -file-line-error. The binaries also understand -file-line-error-style.
