    How can I achieve that within texlive? Btw: TL 2009, windows(7)

There is no command line option, unfortunately.  Maybe someday there
will be.  To date, you have to set environment variables.  In Windows
syntax (I think):

set TEXINPUTS=sty:
set BIBINPUTS=bib:

latex ...
bibtex ...

Putting the files in the TEXMFHOME tree is another possibility.  See the
TL/kpathsea documentation about that, and the file texmf.cnf.
