I think you could use something like
export TEXMFDBS="$(kpsewhich --show-path=ls-R):~/.etc/texmf"
but that is probably not much better than running
directly when needed.
I simply deleted my ~/texmf/ls-R when the system was changed, as
suggested in /usr/share/doc/tex-common/NEWS.Debian.gz. This works fine
for me, but it might become annoying if you have too many files in the
texmf directories in $HOME. I have about 800 files in there and I don't
notice any delay when latex has to search for one of them while it
processes a source file.
