Well, if I run:

kpsewhich --format='web2c\ files' fmtutil.cnf

the file is found. So the problem is with the space included in the --
format option. The problem is that I suppose that there can be spaces 
included in a lot of --format options all over the place, and I would 
need a global solution.

Has anybody else solved a similar issue? Any suggestion?
