This may also be set by some other apps built with perl, not only TL2007.

TEXINPUTS caused problems for some testers with MiKTeX

(MiKTeX interprets TEXINPUTS differently from kpathsea --
TEXINPUTS=./macros will look in the macros subdir of the
current working directory.    In my experience, this is quite
common among MiKTeX users.)
