[tex-live] issue with OSFONTDIR

Hi there,

after installing TL2011 yesterday, I would like to test ConTeXt with
access to new fonts.

I read that I have to set the OSFONTDIR variable, but on my Fedora 14
system, not on the texmf.cnf file.

I did it with an sh file that contains:

	export OSFONTDIR="/usr/share/fonts/"

The problem is that tool that extracts names for ConTeXt MKIV needs that
all fonts will be in that directory, and no subdirectory is allowed.

I have about 15 subdirectories in that directory. How can I make that
the sh file provides all relevant directories to the system?

Thanks for your help,
