I worked a little on this idea to provide a splitted layout for texmf trees
with teTeX3, as the teTeX doc recommands.

I came out adding a mk/ file, highly inspired by the one, to
provide dependancy, variables to chose which teTeX to depend on, and variables
to help packaging. I called it latex, and used variables with the name latex
since i'm not sure tetex will be the major (and almost only) latex under unix.

I also modified the teTeX3-texmf package to reflect the texmf layout reommanded
in tetex doc, and modified to test it the bibtex2html and latex2html packages
(only this one is really interesting, as it installs files in the texmf tree).

I have put the diff and the file on: 
(this one is big, because the PLIST is huge)

Please let me know if you have any
comment or critics.
