I installed some local additions to the system wide texmf tree in
~~/texmf. In order to have latex pick that stuff up, I set $TEXMF to

% kpsewhich -expand-var='$TEXMF' 
warning: kpathsea: variable `TEXMF' references itself (eventually).

No problems arise, when I unset the TEXMF environment variable. Of

Any hints on what I am missing here (as well as which documentation I
might not have read) are appreciated.
