but from the doc, it seems that all texmf.cnf files are read, so for
my texmf.cnf in /usr/local/texlive/2010/ contains only three lines
TEXMFHOME = ~/Library/texmf
TEXMFVAR = ~/Library/texlive/2010/texmf-var
TEXMFCONFIG = ~/Library/texlive/2010/texmf-config
Hence the bulk of the configuration is still in the initial texmf.cnf in
However, if TEXMFLOCAL is redefined in a copy of texmf.cnf in
texmf-local/ . . .
. . . then I guess things could happen,
but I am just a user, I know nothing of the internals of texlive
