In this point, I was very confused.

I have an impression that someone said that we should 
remark with debconf and others said that it was abuse
of debconf.  What is the correct understanding?

At present, I reserved the old texmf.cnf as texmf.cnf.dpkg-old
and expalin how to merge local modifications to the new 
scheme in README.Debian without using debconf.
