That's correct. However - I have no idea where the TEXEDIT default is
$ grep TEXEDIT src/Packages/texlive-new/texlive-bin-2007/build/source/texk/web2c/pdftexdir/*
$ grep TEXEDIT src/Packages/texlive-new/texlive-bin-2007/build/source/texk/web2c/*
$ grep TEXEDIT /etc/texmf/texmf.d/*
Can anyone help me out? Maybe someone with the TeXBook at hand...
