mplib           : initializing instance 'metafun' using format 'metafun'
mplib           : loading 'metafun.mp' (experimental metapost version two)
mplib           > mp terminal: ! I can't open file `hvdm'.
<*> ...core : input mp-core.mp ; fi ; ;\input hvdm
                                                   def init_pens = pickup pe...
Please type another input file name

Now that is strange, because looking into the ls-R in texmf-local I see them present:


So, why is hvdm.mp not found? Other files mentioned in ls-R, for example:
etcetera, are indeed found.

By the way, why are all the .svn (subversion) directories included in ls-R? Cannot .svn/* be excluded?
