The relevant lines are:

======== version information =======
tlmgr revision 18011 (2010-04-26 21:41:33 +0200)
tlmgr using installation: /opt/texlive/2009
TeX Live (http://tug.org/texlive) version 2009
======== kpathsea variables ========

I’ve attached the full output in case I missed something pertinent.

(BTW, it complained of “missing finding of XDvi, config!”.)

I’m trying to play with the development versions of fontspec &c., so I
installed fontspec.sty [2010/05/14 v2.0 …] (and the .cfg & .lua) in
/home/chesky/texmf/tex/latex/fontspec.  I even get this result:

chesky at derrial:~$ kpsewhich -all fontspec.sty
chesky at derrial:~$ kpsewhich fontspec.sty

But when I try to typeset the documentation for the development version
of xltxtra, I get:

chesky at derrial:~/Downloads/wspr/xltxtra$ xelatex xltxtra.dtx
This is XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.2-0.9995.2 (TeX Live 2009)
LaTeX Warning: You have requested, on input line 28, version
               `2010/05/14 v2.0' of package fontspec,
               but only version
               `2008/08/09 v1.18 Advanced font selection for XeLaTeX'
               is available.

Why is the system not preferring my locally-installed version?
