[tex-live] bug report: dvisvgm cannot use TL

Hi Ingo,

I did produce a simple texfile containing just an equation (\pagestyle{empty}) 
and afterwards the dvi.
	A  \subsetneq B

I used following script for conversion and had an texmf.cnf in the working dir 
where $SELFAUTO...-variables from kpathsea were replaced by $TEXLIVEBASE
#! /bin/bash

export TEXLIVEBASE=/usr/local/texlive/2008
export TEXMFCNF=.:/usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf/web2c/

/usr/local/bin/dvisvgm $@

If you have the mentioned failure calling the script on the dvi with -n option 
you get a svg, that is empty on viewing (has no contained <path> element ).

Hope this helps
