Oh oh, now I have opened a can of worms. ;-)

The file which sets texmf-local (from TeX Live) is read after the one 
which sets texmf.local (from me) so the setting in 
/usr/local/teTeX/texmf.cnf is used instead.

	1. Environment
	2. /usr/local/teTeX/texmf.cnf
	3. /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf
	4. Built-in (compile time defaults)

Anything that is found is not reset to the values found later. So, the 
setting in /usr/local/teTeX/texmf.cnf for TEXMFLOCAL etc are used.
