[tex-k] bibtex should print the path of the bib files it uses

Hi Manuel - thanks for the report.  I'm not sure that we should change
the default bibtex output after all these years, but maybe.  I'll ask
Oren what he thinks.  We could at least provide a -verbose option.

Of course running kpsewhich foo.bib should yield the information, or
running KPATHSEA_DEBUG=-1 bibtex ..., but I recognize that there's no
reason to think of doing such things in the situation you describe.

Meanwhile, it seems wrong to me for a package (computational-complexity)
to take over such a generic name as "journals.bib", for precisely the
reasons you write about.
