Close. I use what make install produces next to other texmf trees 
(amongst others teTeX's texmf tree which is then in texmf.tetex). 
Besides, I think everybody will use some data files (like the .pool 
files which are closely related to the binaries after all).

The reason is that I need to be able to update binaries (and support 
for binaries) and foundation (texmf) separately.
