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

sorry about this, I was wrong

If it weren't, your logging program would have had a hard time showing
its name, wouldn't it?

indeed, with a manually done

kpsewhich --progname latex --expand-path '$TEXMFMAIN'


with quotes to avoid shell expansion it does work.
