besides, shouldn't all those be

kpsewhich --var-value SYSTEXMF

etc ... ?

indeed for example on my system I don't have any environment variable
set relative to the TeX installation ...

All the relevant path are all set-up in the  texmf.cnf file
from the TeXLive distribution.


5.3.2 Variable expansion

‘$foo’ or ‘${foo}’ in a path element is replaced by (1) the value of an 
environment variable ‘foo’ (if defined); (2) the value of ‘foo’ from texmf.cnf 
(if defined); (3) the empty string.

But with the syntax

kpsewhich --progname latex --expand-path $SYSTEXMF

$SYSTEXMF is not there as a path element

and doing these calls manually, with unset environment variables results in 

$ kpsewhich --progname latex --expand-path $TEXMFDIST
/usr/texbin/kpsewhich: option `--expand-path' requires an argument

$ kpsewhich --var-value TEXMFDIST
