[tex-k] A quick kpathsea question

Hello, a quick question. On the computers I am sysadm'ing, a couple of
users now needs tex4ht; I have downloaded the distribution, read the
instructions, and in these instructions found that I should set TEXINPUTS
so that tex will know where to look for the tex4ht files.
My users have a TETEXDIR environment variable set, but no TEXINPUTS; so I
tried to circumvent the problem installing all of the tex4ht files in a
subdirectory of $TETEXDIR/share/texmf-local/ and running texhash (the
problem is to tell to 200 users to modify their shell startup files in
order to define a new environment variable).
But these new files are not found. It seems that kpsewhich, from kpathsea
version 3.5.4 (teTeX 3), is looking only for files whose extension is
inside a known set. The texmf-local ls-lr file has all my newly added
files inside, but they are sort of invisible :-(
Does somebody know how to install the tex4ht files in a TETEXDIR tree
where TEXINPUTS is not defined, so that these files are recognized?
Please, answer by email too because I do not read your lists.
