Yes, I expected that.

I use several Linux distro: Slamd64, Archlinux (x86_64), Ubuntu 9.04
(i686, x86_64).

AFAIK, only Fedora and Archlinux have TL2009 in their testing
repositories but TL 2007 is installed by default.

I see two possible ways to compile dvisvgm: 1) compile ONLY kpathsea
from texlive source
2) integrate kpathsea library into dvisvgm as xdvik do.

Thanks for explanation and confirming by suggestions.

WBR, Vladimir Lomov
