I tried (and eventually succeeded) updating TeXLive on my Mac from 2008 to 2009.  TeXLive said I didn't have perl/tk, so I used MacPorts to install it.  Then when I ran sudo install-tl --gui=wizard, I got a segfault.  I figured it must be some incompatibility between the version of Perl used by TeXLive and the version used by Macports (v5.8.9).  My Mac's "normal" (/usr/bin/perl) Perl is v5.10.0.  I downloaded Tk-804.028_501 from CPAN and installed that using the "normal" Perl.  At that point sudo install-tl --gui=perltk ran fine.  Just thought others might care if this happens to them.
