 Your TEXINPUTS works with teTeX 2.0, but it just happens to
 work because /usr/local/share/texmf which is used by teTeX
 is specified in the TEXINPUTS _manually_.  This directory
 is changed in teTeX 3.0.  It is that simple.

 This is one of the changes in teTeX 3.0, not a specific
 change to the port.  Using TEXINPUTS in this way (w/o a
 trailing ":") is not recommended well before because with
 hard-coded TEXINPUTS, change of the directory layout (using
 non-default $PREFIX, for example) easily breaks teTeX.
