ok, i now have

       if ($MetaFun) {
            $mpbin = 'mpost --progname=mpost --mem=metafun' ;
        } else {
            $mpbin = 'mpost --mem=mpost' ;
i'm still puzzled why it fails with hartmut because he doen't use the 
--metafun switch, does he?

concerning the main_memory settings, i use those here -)

(at least these values indicate what users should set them to for heavy 
metaposting); next tex live i'll switch to the ruby variant of texexec 
(with integrated texutil) which while probably use the metafun mem values

thanks for looking into it
