Bug#175341: texmf-local is missing



Package: tetex-base
Version: 1.0.2+20021025-3

According to UK List of TeX Frequently Asked Questions installation of
local packages must be done like this:

http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=instpackages
http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=wherefiles

But in Debian texmf-local do not fscking exist at all! When I run
"locate", it can't find such thing.

I have these lines in my /etc/texmf/texmf.cnf , but IIRC I added them
by hand:

% A place for local additions to a "standard" texmf tree.  For example:
TEXMFLOCAL = /usr/local/share/texmf
TEXMFOLDLOCAL = /usr/local/lib/texmf

But why don't we have such thing out-of-the-box? I think
/usr/local/share/texmf-local would be more canonical name and it won't
confuse newbies reading UK TeX FAQ.
