Sorry, at the moment nobody cannot catch why fc-config fails *during* 
installation. We discussed it here several times and it seems to me
that the problem should go to texlive-bug as still not resolved with a 
hint that "it is recommended to run fc-cache -r -v after installation".
Sorry again, but we have now more serious problems with xetex in win32...

TEXMFCNF is not used anymore on Windows.

This is because you have TEXMFCNF set from TL2007, as I recall.
Anyway, the rest of your messages looks OK by me. And TEXMFCNF seems
to be removed from your environment. If not, for further work, please
remove it yoursef, as the warning say.
