TEXMFTEMP is a new one to me.  Is this where temporary fonts etc are
written to?  If it is, I believe some long-term headaches may just be
getting solved.

I don't have much experience either as I tend to install through unix.
However it is used through linux.  I'll see if I can pull together what
little I know and stick it up somewhere.  If anyone else has helpful things
to add (eg best way to add ghostscript utils) please post it.
