- Compare TEXMF and the components of TEXMF like TEXMFDIST. Missing "!!" could 
slow down file searching.

- Ask kpsewhich for other texmf.cnf using `kpsewhich -a texmf.cnf'.

Use the KPATHSEA_DEBUG and TEXMFLOG to get more information about file 
searching. See `texdoc kpathsea', section 8.3 and 8.4 for more information 
about this.
