I know it's a possibility but I have some reservations. 
I have 70 000 articles (.tex) and the same number of .pdf files. (6Go)
I would like to have an optimized distribution, that is to say I don't want to slow down the search of the main files (
 packages .tex and .sty ). The only case when I need to find personal files is when I build an exam.
I need to use files inside ~/Boulot/Base (it's the main folder).
Is it equivalent to put all my files $HOME/Library/texmf instead of $HOME/Boulot/Base with
TEXINPUTS.pdflatex = .;$HOME/Boulot/Base//;$TEXMF/tex/{latex,generic,}// ?

I don't know what is the best method. I use the texmf.cnf method because I read a recommendation
 on the Net but a lot of recommendations are not pertinent!
