There is another line, in your texput.cns, which suggests that the paths
are taken from paths.h (why?) and not TEXMFCNF:

 > kdebug:Search path for cnf files (from compile-time paths.h)

On my machine (Solaris, TL6), the corresponding line would be:
 kdebug:Search path for cnf files (from TEXMFCNF environment variable)

Also, you might to check $TEXMF expansion with kpsewhich --expand-var '$TEXMF'
to see whether it finds user's local texmf tree.
