This is a new error right? Of did you have it before setting TEXMFCONF/PATH?
If it is new, that means you are actually getting furter: I think
Evince is reading the texmf.cnf file, but then, when it starts the
helper program mktex... that helper program gets confused.

Well,  you should I think. That is the more difficult part and I do
not remember exactly anymore what is needed and do not have it around
anymore. I think you need to set the search paths to absolute paths,
by replacing the $SELFAUTOPARENT occurrences in
\\gte-srv\texlive\2009\texmf\web2c\texmf.cnf with an absolute path and
also get rid of the "~" refering to some user home dir.

It really is a lot of trial and error, that is why I wished you "Good luck"!
