I guess you should be on Solaris to check this, here is what I get when I
install the Basic Scheme in a test location from
Fixing permissions in /usr/local/test_texlive... done.
Setting up directories for automatic font creation... done.
Configuring fmtutil.cnf from /usr/local/test_texlive/texmf/web2c into
Setting local tree (TEXMFLOCAL) to $SELFAUTOPARENT/texmf-local in
Setting system var tree (TEXMFSYSVAR) to $SELFAUTOPARENT/texmf-var in
Setting TEXMFHOME to $HOME/$HOMEtexmf in
Done updating texmf.cnf.
This must be related to the fact that I should not have tried installation
from inst on Solaris (I took my TL 2005 install procedure and overlooked that
the binaries were missing, then I copied the sparc-solaris bin from live).
But in that case, the only effect should be to fail to install the binaries,
shouldn't it ? The sharable part should install normally.
This seems quite an exotic situation, I can create a more detailed log
if possible and if you need it.
