I looked into /CTAN/tex-archive/systems/web2c/texmflib-7.9.tar.gz
and didn't find a texmf.cnf at all.  There are some texmf.cnf files in
the web2c distribution but they are all in the triptrap directories
and are not intended for an end-user.  Thus they do not have the
`original' in it.

Shall I send you teTeX's texmf.cnf by private mail?

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
