I think that this is not cross-platform from the command
line because of the various meanings of special characters,
in particular, '$'.  In a GNU/Linux command line either the
'$' needs to be escaped with '\' or the whole first argument
of kpsewhich needs to be enclosed in ascii single quotes so
that the '$' is not intercepted by the shell.

Perhaps:  kpsewhich -var-value=TEXMFDIST
