I have done that previously and, yes, I do get the subdirectories. But that's 
not the problem. The problem is that aleph is searching for its format in 
pdfetex's subdirectory:

This is Aleph, Version 3.141592-1.15-2.1-0.0-rc4 (Web2c 7.5.3)
 \write18 enabled.

How do we make aleph search its own subdirectory?

Just to be sure, texexec --verbose gives

setting : 'UseEnginePath' to 'true' for 'all'
