I gave it a try today, on a Solaris8 machine for a start. The compilation 
was smooth! The only problems I encountered were:

* format files for omega and lambda failed to build (error message below 
  comes from building omega.fmt; the one for lambda is similar):
  This is Omega, Version 3.14159--1.23 (Web2C 7.3.7) (INIOMEGA)
  Copyright (c) 1994--2000 John Plaice and Yannis Haralambous
  CP file error (checking size)
  ! Translation process \OCPebcdic=ebcdic not loadable: Bad ocp file.
  l.1 \ocp\OCPebcdic=ebcdic
  ! Emergency stop.
  l.1 \ocp\OCPebcdic=ebcdic
* missing make directives for freetype programs (ttf2pk, ttf2tfm):
  make[1]: Entering directory `texlive/Build/source.development/freetype'
  make[1]: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

* texdoctk not being installed with other binaries. I think this is due to 
  the missing entry in Build/source.development/TeX/texk/configure.in
