OK, but see below regarding the setting of TEXMF!

That's strange. If you have a normal installation of teTeX, 
you should have the program kpsexpand installed. Actually, 
kpsexpand is normally a soft link to the program kpsetool
(which determines from argv[0] what to do).

Yet another indication that your teTeX installation is broken!
What happens if you run
tex testfont
and specify font = cmr8, and type the test commands \table and
\bye? The result should be a file testfont.dvi that you can
view using xdvi.
Please make sure that teTeX is correctly installed.

This means that you didn't read what INSTALL.txt says
about lilypond-profile, since it sets the $TEXMF variable
