Karl and Friends,
after many years of using TeX and friends I have found that dvips under
TeXlive has changed. Specifically for many years when invoked as,
dvips -P foo bar.dvi
would invoke the printer configuration file config.foo
In ALL of these cases I place the file config.foo in my current working
directory, so that dvips would find it. It has been my understanding that
searching the present working directory, PWD should take precedence over
all other search paths.
As far as I can tell, now under TeXlive, dvips is no longer able to
find the file config.foo Some months ago I installed TeXlive 2008 on
my Windows machine, as well as more recently under TeXlive 2007 on my
Fedora installation. Please advise if I am doing something silly, but
I have checked both, the this behavior is reproducible. Previous
installation with teTeX do not show this behavior.
Please tell me where I should put config.foo in order that dvips will find
