Actually, I did do that, but it still didn't work. I forgot that I simply
needed to log-off and log back on to refresh the environment variables.
Works like a charm now. I've updated my login profile scripts at the root
level, and now all I need(or any user on the system) to do is put either
2011 or 2012 into a hidden file in the user's home directory, and it
automatically builds the right TEX* env-vars. It's just a matter of logging
off and logging back in to refresh them after a change.
