How should we help you there? Why would you do that instead
of using TeX Live as it is?
Anyway, lets try:

That file looks strange, is moved TEXMFSYSVAR and TEXMFSYSCONFIG
respectively (if the binaries are in /usr/bin).
Can you call
kpsewich -debug=-1 plain.tex
and the you might study the output, what are the search paths
It should give you some information.
But in genereal we do *NOT* support any private homebrewn or
whatever build and restructuring of the texmf trees. When
I (Debian hat on) get a bug report about these kind of
things I have to sort it out myself, as this is not the
way TeX Live proper is shipped.
