Very strange. install-tl.sh installs in /usr/TeX by default. Even if 
you've changed the default TEXDIR to eg. /usr/local/share/, you do not 
need seting VARTEXMF. Did you have any TeX specific environment variables
set _before_ running install-tl.sh? Which platform?

Unfortunatelly no. We still keep pdf(e)tex.pool for pdftex 1.10b 
(web2c 7.4.5) because not all binaries sets were remade (win32) and 
pdftex is still changing. I can send you proper .pool files
