    I downloaded install-tl-unx.tar.gz from a mirror site yesterday, but
    looking at the dates, there is nothing since Jun 13th.

Well, obviously that mirror is bad.  What mirror is it?

    I'm surprised that perl doesn't respect TMPDIR.

It's not about perl, it is about our code.  And yes, it should use
TMPDIR rather than hardwiring /tmp.
