Hi all, a bit old story...

I've installed xetex 0.944a in my Debian/unstable (with TeXlive,
I rebuilt xetex so that xetex was installable with texlive).

This would be very small problem but I noticed that our tex-common
installed texmf.cnf with settings for xetex;

% XeTeX
TEXINPUTS.xelatex = .;$TEXMF/tex/{latex,generic,}//
TEXINPUTS.xetex   = .;$TEXMF/tex/{plain,generic,}//

(from where it comes?  from texlive?)

This may be not bad but, under this settings, I suspect that
there could be a problem.

* there are some duplicated files in XeTeX and TeXliv/teTeX,
for example, keyval.sty, xkeyval.sty are such files.

* under the above settings (and the current xetex package)
xetex/xelatex find keyval.sty of TeXlive (not of XeTeX itself).

Of course the directory structure of XeTeX would be changed
when it is included in TeXlive or packaged for Debian but,
possibly, it will be put under TEXMF/tex/xetex, TEXMF/xelatex
so the above (not yet used) settings looked wrong.

I guess possible fix will be

* remove the above settings completely, or
* change the settings something like
TEXINPUTS.xelatex = .;$TEXMF/tex/{xelatex,latex,generic,}//
TEXINPUTS.xetex   = .;$TEXMF/tex/{xetex,plain,generic,}//

Is the license problematic?
