 Hmmm.  On some of my systems, this is defined, while it is not defined 
 on others.  For those on which it is defined, the install works;  and it 
 fails on those where this is not defined.
 It looks like the machines on which it is failing has some _very_ old 
 version of this file, which contains 'direct" definitions for the rest 
 of the directories.  For example,
        TEXMFMAIN = /usr/pkg/share/texmf   (failing system)
        TEXMFMAIN = $TEXMFROOT/texmf       (working system)
 Thanks for the clue - now I can clean this up!
