There is a set of files for a large project here:
common_layout.th has some metapost code in it. The .th2 files are the
ones that describe the lines and symbols use to draw each section. the
thconfig file sets which files and styles are used for each dir (try
benarat/terikan/ as a reasonably complex and complete example).

As I said I'm not sure this is really going to help that much as it is
too far removed from Tex to be relevant. 

I think the tex, mpost and (maybe) texenc dirs in the source are the
bit that show what tex and metapost functions are used.

I don't understand this question. Martin, Stacho?

Well that Mulu.tbz tarball is an example. Unpack it. and apt-get install therion.
cd benarat/terikan

and watch it process. (You can do therion at the top level but that
could take a while).

I suppose I could try the same thing with texlive and see what
happens. But right now I need to produce some output for an expedition
leaving just after xmas. I'll try Texlive once that panic is over.
