So I set  KPATHSEA_DEBUG="-1", and ran

xdvi a >& xdvi-out &

I put xdvi-out on the web as


I see the weird

kdebug:Search path for vf files (from texmf.cnf)
kdebug:  = 

This is puzzling since texconfig confall has 

kdebug:Search path for vf files (from texmf.cnf)
kdebug:  =

One more thing from `texconfig confall'

kdebug:Search path for cnf files (from compile-time paths.h)
kdebug:  =

Do all these `bin' components look normal?

I get

$ grep bin /usr/local/teTeX/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf 
% a program that uses the 'other text files' or 'other binary files'

This is it.

Finally, these are my installation notes:

Unpack, compile:

mkdir -p /usr/local/teTeX/texmf
tar zxvfp  teTeX-texmf-1.0.tar.gz -C /usr/local/teTeX/texmf
tar zxvf teTeX-src-1.0.tar.gz
cd teTeX-1.0

Edit texk/kpathsea/texmf.in and 

: ${MT_FEATURES=appendonlydir:varfonts}
: ${MODE=ljfivemp}

./configure --disable-multiplatform
sh -c 'make world >world.log 2>&1' &

Thx for any suggestions,
