Well, everything that can be $-substituted must be in $PATHS. Some variables there are in the default-config, others are created at runtime by libgnunetutil based on its heuristics to guess where the various autotools prefixes ended up.

This is not just a documentation issue, but the taler-util TS package also needs to support those variables.
