[tex-live] installing pretest in cygwin 64: install-tl and tlmgr errors.

I am attempting to install the pretest via

./install-tl -repository http://ftp.cstug.cz/pub/tex/local/tlpretest/ -gui text

However it ends with a "bad status" warning and if I try to set the
path and run tlmgr
it fails (shouldn't @INC have
/usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-dist/scripts not /texmf-dist/scripts ?
(my perl is a bit rusty)

-----------end of messages on terminal---

Logfile: /usr/local/texlive/2016/install-tl.log
./install-tl: errors in installation reported above,
./install-tl: exiting with bad status.

--- try to set path and use tlmgr anyway ---

$ export PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2016/bin/x86_64-cygwin:$PATH

$ tlmgr update --all
Can't locate TeXLive/TLConfig.pm in @INC (@INC contains:
/texmf-dist/scripts/texlive /tlpkg
/usr/lib/perl5/5.14/x86_64-cygwin-threads /usr/lib/perl5/5.14 .) at
/usr/local/texlive/2016/bin/x86_64-cygwin/tlmgr line 92.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at
/usr/local/texlive/2016/bin/x86_64-cygwin/tlmgr line 92.


I attach the install log (I deleted most of the package install lines
to make it reasonable size, no errors were reported in that phase)
