I had been using old teTeX-based TeX with mpm until recently I  
switched to new TeXLive!-based gwTeX (latest update from tonight).
I guess I have to modify mpm configuration in order to teach it how  
to work with the new set up.
If I understand the instructions on the MikTeX website correctly  
compiling mpm on a system also detects and sets the correct install  
location (i.e. the texmf.local), right? the other option, using sudo  
mpm --install-root=~/texmf --update-db, would set the install  
location for this one installation process only, right? So the next  
time I perform some kind of installation without the --install-root  
option mpm will use the old set up defined during the configuration  
The new texmf.local resides inside gwTex (/usr/local/gwtex/texmf.local)?
