Is this a new feature, or has the layout/location of the PostScript
header path changed?

To avoid the endless support problems we had with [setting] the
various *TEX/MF* environment variables, we have laid out the typical
lilypond installation like a standard TEXMF tree, and only set TEXMF.

This has proven to be a much more robust solution.

The LilyPond installation is laid out thus:

    $ l /usr/share/lilypond/2.2.6/
    dvips/  fonts/  ly/     make/   ps/     python/ scm/    tex/    vim/


    $ ls /usr/share/lilypond/2.2.6/ps/

How do we get this to work with tetex-2.0 and tetex-3.0 without
resorting to environment variable trickery?
