it depends on your texinputs variable: 


here, default will eventually fall back to tex's input path search 


but, there need to be a tmp path relative to one of the paths that make up texinputs; in context mkiv we can use more clever methods because there we will have more control over finding and opening files; for now, we depend on what tex and kpse/web2c provide
