few? afaik all windows and linux systems -)

anyhow, taco and i decided now to default as follows: if CACHEPATH is 
not set:

         cachepath = os.env["TEXMFCACHE"] or os.env["TMP"] or 
os.env["TEMP"] or os.env["TMPDIR"] or os.get["HOME"] or 
os.env["HOMEPATH"] or nil

in texmfcnf.lua one can set up his/her personal preferences

(both taco and i use $TEMP cq. $TMP)
