hm, normally it will look relative to the binary, in trees/web2c paths

ok; taking bins from one tex tree (full tree) and expecting them to work 
with another one is tricky due all this auto-magic; in that case setting 
the TEXMF variable as environment variable might help

(in general it's best to use a context garden tree with garden binaries 
as there we use beta bins)
