Oh no, not again.  We dealt with MikTeX's `kpsewhich' about a year
ago in order to get `TeX-macro-global' working (back then it was a
script in aclocal.m4).  At that time Christian helped quite a lot by
producing extensive output from `kpsewhich' which can be found on
Gmane.  (The options not mentioned in the -help output we had to
extract from the sources.)
