I have no real answer, but since some time you can debug how the TeX 
programmes and companions work:

	pdfetex -kpathsea-debug 4 testfont

With the value 4 libkpathsea will make pdfetex report all files it 
opens. Well, it does not show where pdfetex does *not* search ... could 
its addition be an improvement?

The numbers to -kpathsea-debug are actually bit masks so you can add a 
few of them and pass these as the sum of them all to -kpathsea-debug. 
The documentation can be read in 'texdoc kpathsea' beginning at page 23 
Some TeX companions use a different scheme, but that's then documented 
in the manual page or in <companion> --help.
