originally we did 'reset' these variables but at some point we stopped 
doing that because the recommended method is to let it be set 
automatically (from the cnf file) - also, in the meantime we figured 
that other distributions didn't set those vars any longer - i'm not too 
fond on changing setuptex in oscillating ways (every year a new policy)
