The search path for .cnf files is different from anything else, because
the texmf.cnf file is searched along this path. This means that only
the compile-time path makes any sense, so to get the real path, please use

kpathsea uses the .cnf search path here, but this is not the way that
is normally used to find the file. If you look at fmtutil, you'll find
out that the real thing is:
kpsewhich --format='web2c files' fmtutil.cnf
> frank at alhambra:~$ kpsewhich --format cnf fmtutil.cnf
That's just as wrong as the other invocation. fmtutil.cnf should not be
searched by the rules that apply to texmf.cnf. Instead, the "web2c files"
search path is the right one.

Hm... In that case, you could have found out by
bash -x fmtutil --byfmt latex
