You do say `don't ask why', but just in case it helps avoid sed  
hackery, are you aware that an empty path in the relevant environment  
variable causes the kpse searching algorithms to insert the default  
path at that point?


% kpsepath bib
% export BIBINPUTS=/my/place::/last/ditch
% kpsepath bib

Just in case....
