Behavior of several programs in MiKTeX depend on Environment Variables such as BIBTEX, LATEX (or PDFLATEX), MAKEINDEX, MAKEINFO, TEX (or PDFTEX), and TEXINDEX etc. But usage of such variables in PORTABLE version of MiKTeX contardicts to the very idea of portability.

So, to my mind, it would be useful that MiKTeX 2.8 Portable took all the needed variables not from "environemant variables" but from some configuration (local) file. Sorry, if I am ignorant and such a feature is alreday exists.
