My intended setup scheme will be the following (unless someone come
with fine objections !) :

- copy original texmf.cnf to texmf_local/web2c
- change :

HOMETEXMF = $HOME/texmf (if $HOME available)

- change the environment :

FPTEX = c:\Local\TeX
PATH = %FPTEX%\bin\win32;%PATH%
TEXMFCNF = %FPTEX%\texmf_local\web2c

And that shoud be all.

Some other configuration files will be copied to the $TEXMFLOCAL tree:
config.ps, pdftex.cfg, mktex.cnf, psfonts.map (?)

I just want that people be able to erase the TEXMFMAIN tree, unpack a
new one and not loose their main settings.
