Berhard, I've run texhash on texfm-dist:

  # texhash texmf-dist
  texhash: Updating /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf-dist/ls-R... 
  texhash: Done.

  # texhash 
  texhash: Updating /usr/local/share/texmf/ls-R... 
  texhash: Updating /var/lib/texmf/ls-R-TEXMFMAIN... 
  texhash: Updating /var/lib/texmf/ls-R-TEXLIVE... 
  texhash: Updating /var/lib/texmf/ls-R... 
  texhash: Done.

  $ echo $TEXINPUTS

Apparently my texlive distribution is still not found by texhash (although I 
don't understand how you know that).

This already in my PATH environment:

  $ echo $PATH

Incidentally, I define the TeX environment in ~/.bashrc rather than 
/etc/environment. It should make no difference.

I do have an old TeXLive 2009 installed. I thought I had moved its 
latex executable, but now see that /usr/bin/latex is a symlink to 
pdftex. Since my TeXLive 2011 is working nicely for non-bibliographic 
files, I probably should purge the old TeXLive 2009.

The only relevant executable now in /usr/local/bin is the biber 
executable. Should there be something more? Or are you suggesting that 
the /usr/local/bin path should be put into the environment before the 
/usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/i386-linux path? I tried this by 
prepending a PATH statement in ~/.bashrc, but it didn't help.

  $ which texhash

Bernhard, thank for your help. You all on an AUCTeX list are indeed 
very tolerant. I tried downloading a sample biblatex file and when I 
run latex on them, same problem.
