I was actually wondering about that... I thought it was a bug. Anyway,
$ file /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf \
/etc/texmf/texmf.cnf: ASCII English text
/var/lib/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf: ASCII English text
/usr/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf: ASCII English text
$ ls -i /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf \
notice the last two are hardlinked.
I'll let the others argue why this is bad. We have had this discussion
