There are two texmf.cnf files. Although I don't recommend touching either one the one in /usr/local/texlive/2010/ is the only one that could be touched since it contains any changes in configuration from the standard base configuration for the local system. The main texmf.cnf file is in /usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf-dist/ and is read in first. It has the lines you are interested in changing (by adding corrected lines to the other texmf.cnf file) so examine its contents.
Do understand that changes you make to texmf.cnf may have unintended consequences and especially to security of your TeX Distribution and system.
