Indeed, we don't do this. What it the purpose of this command and how to call it?

When running w/ option --generate I get:

hille at sid:~ $ mtxrun --generate

MTXrun | resolvers: variable 'SELFAUTOLOC' set to '/usr/bin'
MTXrun | resolvers: variable 'SELFAUTODIR' set to '/usr'
MTXrun | resolvers: variable 'SELFAUTOPARENT' set to '.'
MTXrun | resolvers: variable 'TEXMFCNF' set to ''
MTXrun | resolvers: variable 'TEXMF' set to ''
MTXrun | resolvers: variable 'TEXOS' set to '/usr'
MTXrun | resolvers
MTXrun | resolvers: warning: no lua configuration files found
MTXrun | resolvers
MTXrun | resolvers

TEXMFCNF and TEXMF are empty, but they are set in
/usr/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf:

TEXMFCNF = /usr/share/texmf/web2c;/usr/local/share/texmf/web2c
TEXMF =
{$TEXMFCONFIG,$TEXMFVAR,$TEXMFHOME,$TEXMFSYSCONFIG,\
!!$TEXMFSYSVAR,!!$TEXMFLOCAL,!!$TEXMFMAIN,!!$TEXMFDIST}

Thanks,
  Hilmar
