    could texconfig only copy files to LOCAL if they cannot be found in VAR?

I'm not sure texconfig's action should depend on what previously exists.
That hasn't been suggested before.

To reiterate my own suggestion: (1) as Thomas proposed, make the target
directory for the copy be a variable, choosable at runtime (I mean,
without having to edit the script), and (2) make the default target, for
both teTeX and TeX Live, be texmf-var.
