The format creation is not an installation script. It is a special
tex compilation. And I certainly expect that a format takes e.g. my
texmfhome or texinputs into account. I actually quite often generate
local formats with the development code. And our testsuite generates
formats with special settings too.

In any case: a current LaTeX reads glyphtounicode.tex into the
format, so if you have a local one it will be used. If you don't
want that, change the name of your file to e.g.
vincent-glyphtounicode.tex (and perhaps shorten it) and load that
when needed.
