the ls-R/kpathsea algorithm does not support a mechanism for
prioritizing. if the texmf.cnf setup says that two directories are
available, and they both have "times.sty", you cant predict which one
gets found. so i wonder how your texmf.cnf is set up
Sebastian is a shade too pessimistic about the handling of LaTeX2e
vs. latex209 conflicts.
When you want latex209, call it latex209 (that is, symlink virtex to
latex209) and make sure the name of the latex209 dumped format file
Finally, make sure that these lines or something similar are in your
latex209_inputs = .:$TEXMF/tex/latex209//:$TEXMF/tex//
latex2e_inputs = .:$TEXMF/tex/latex2e//:$TEXMF/tex//
TEXINPUTS.latex209 = $latex209_inputs
TEXINPUTS.latex2e = $latex2e_inputs
TEXINPUTS.latex = $latex2e_inputs
% Earlier entries override later ones, so put this last.
TEXINPUTS = .:$TEXMF//tex//
This does prioritize file selection, every time.
The files needed by dvips are trickier. An excellent reason to stop
