With a simple test file it runs as well here, have to look into it

I'm not absolutely sure I understand what you suggest. With the -e  
parameter I can point it to the .env file but then it doesn't find  
cmsy6.tfm and the -t paramter doesn't seem to help here. Isn't tex4ht  
able to find t he file it needs inside the local tree? texhash  
doesn't seem to work, but always pointing the files seems cumbersome.

Sorry, maybe I'm just stupid, but I really don't get it to work.
