No, sorry I am too lazy for this. If we state in the manpage that we
create /usr/share/texmf and /var/lib/texmf and we state that IF you
add/remove files from other trees, please specify them on the cmd line
via --texmftrees, and a maintainer adds /usr/share/texmf, then it is his
fault. Umpf.

Ok, we can sort/uniq it ... later ...
