The texlive packages install their conffiles into /etc/texmf/texlive/...
and link from the /u/s/texmf-texlive tree. The files there are
So IMHO texlive has most conffiles got right. I would oppose moving all
the map files back to /etc.
Finally one question for us TeX maintainers: Do we now really move the
mktex.cnf to tex-common, ie should I remove the
/etc/texmf/texlive/mktex.cnf and install the file into the
/u/s/texmf-texlive hierachy as an example?
