[tex-live] Better ways to find packages and documentation

    We cannot simply copy things to $TEXMFVAR.  

I didn't suggest installing packages in $TEXMFVAR.
I suggested putting texlive.tlpdb there,
just like all the other mutable config files.

But I guess it is true that if the packages are updated in the main
tree(s), that the database might as well be too.
