I assume that you have some more lines in your install-tl.log _after_
 "Running fc-cache -v -r", right?

No, I have always that problem when installing from my local mirror.
I do not understand what does it mean "re-permissioning the entire TeX..."
texmf-var tree is writable anyway, e.g., for regenerated map files, 
formats, etc.
Anyway, running fc-cache -v -r again _after_ installation works well.
