[tex-live] Add user directory

I have been using MiKTeX for a long while, but now I have to switch to 
TeXLive. It was not difficult to download TeXLive and install it on our 
Windows PC. However, I have some tex macros which are used in my TeX 
sources. These macros are collected in the separate directory d:\local 
texmf which is not taught while reinstalling TeX for a new version. Such 
approach works well with MiKTeX: it was very easy do add user directory 
and update FNDB. However, within TeXLive I cannot find where and how to 
change in order to add my directory in FNDB list. I found some config 
files where are some directory variables described. However, they are 
not environment vars (not displayed by set command) , so I cannot 
realized where they are saved.

So, the question is: please tell the reference for some docs with more 
or less detailed instructions how to add my own TeX directory to FNDB list.
Thanks in advance for any idea.
