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

    Do any tools rely on the list of files printed by bibtex? 

I don't know it for a fact, but I suspect so.

    If so, I do not understand how they can do anything with this info
    without the path.

They might implement their own lookup algorithms.  There are plenty of
non-kpathsea implementations in use.  I agree that having the full path
is unlikely to cause problems, though.  We'll see what Oren says.
