Hello Guys,

many thanks for providing TeX Live. Nevertheless I have some things to  
suggest for improvement:


In the docs there is are no hints on which paths can be used to  
customize the installation by the user, e. g.

# where is .dvipsrc?
DVIPSRC may be set optionally

# the next is not really necessary, it's just the default
BIBTEX_CSFILE = /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-dist/bibtex/csf/base/ 

missing or wrong in texmf.cnf, corrected items below:

BSTINPUTS = .;$TEXMF/bibtex/bst//

# where to look for bibtex8 code sort files
CSFINPUT = .;$TEXMF/bibtex/cfs//

no links in documentation /usr/local/texlive/2009/doc.html to

	bibtex8 in /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf/doc/bibtex8
	ae in /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-dist/doc/fonts/ae

missing documentation
	symbols of textcomp

missing packages:



Many thanks and greetings from Germany
