You thought about the variable TEXMFMAIN not TEXMF, didn't you? Currently
variable TEXMF is the whole search PATH consisting of TEXMFCONFIG, TEXMFVAR,
TEXMFHOME, TEXMFSYSCONFIG, TEXMFSYSVAR, TEXMFMAIN, TEXMFLOCAL and TEXMFDIST.
TEXMFMAIN = TEXMFDIST
TEXMFDIST = <BASEDIR>/texlive/<YEAR>/texmf
should work, but TEXMFMAIN should be eliminated from TEXMF in this case.
Nevertheless, I would prefer …/texlive/<YEAR>/texmf-dist or
…/texlive/<YEAR>/texmf-main because it's more intuitive, but that's
As long as `kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFDIST' results in the TDS tree with the
generic and the latex packages of TeX Live my scripts should work.
