Mine (/usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf/web2c/texmfcnf.lua) says
TEXMFCACHE = "$SELFAUTOPARENT/texmf-cache",
TEXMFOS = "$SELFAUTODIR",
TEXMFSYSTEM = "$SELFAUTOPARENT/texmf",
TEXMFMAIN = "$SELFAUTOPARENT/texmf-dist",
TEXMFCONTEXT = "$SELFAUTOPARENT/texmf-context",
TEXMFLOCAL = "$SELFAUTOPARENT/texmf-local",
TEXMFFONTS = "$SELFAUTOPARENT/texmf-fonts",
TEXMFPROJECT = "$SELFAUTOPARENT/texmf-project",
I'm not saying that it won't work at all, but I'm not sure if all the
files in Debian are at the same place relative to binaries. I wasn't
aware that texmf-context and other trees were also "preconfigured" to
exist in TL.
Note that SELFAUTOPARENT is set to root based on Norbert's output. The
tree 'texmf-dist' is probably not located under /texmf-dist ...
