The plan was to update the texmf.cnf to tell kpathsea to look for
files in the /usr/share/texmf tree prior to the main TL2009 tree. This
should make the utilities like xdvipdfmx work even though they are
linked against old kpathsea and expects configuration bits in
/usr/share/texmf.

upstream and is already packaged separatelly in Fedora.
