As long as we can't easily remove eclasses I'd rather we don't make a
new one for such trivial needs. Unless I've missed something and they
can easily be removed nowadays.

Also, overloading the environment with global variables should be
avoided when possible. In that case I'd recommend the VARTEXFONTS
variable be passed with the emake command or whatever needs latex in
the ebuild.
