It's done.

Next problem: sometimes needs to create fonts, and there are few possibilities:
- create the fonts to $HOME/.texlive-2008 directory - imho this is not
too good solution
- create the fonts to /var/lib/texmf (or any other directory) - it's
the better, but there are problems with this.
It must be writeable by all users. The idea, that its owner/group is
'texmf', and some files of texlive has sgid, doesn't work, because it
calls 'mkdir', 'cp'.

What should I do?
