The colon or semicolon in texmf.cnf

And it is also the case on VMS and Amiga where the : is used as 
a drive separator...

Maybe not aesthetic, but definitely the only way to have only one
texmf.cnf for both unix, amiga and windows environments. Amiga was
supported at the time this change was done.
