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.
