Thanks, also. As indicated in my previous message (which you likely
don't have yet), I'm just confused. The @ is in the wrong place to be a
link. I'm just very, very used to associating @ with symbolic link (and
nothing else).

And it does depend on your configuration. With my setup, ls would give
and ls -l would give me:
lrwx.... 13:40... tlmgr@ -> ../../texmf/...

(Just to point out that I'm not completely imagining things here!)
