     Whoops, guess I wasn’t keeping enough an eye out for autocorrect, the scurvy cur…

     Ah, maybe I passed ‘--enable-texlive’ during the run that worked!  That would explain things.  

>> So I think the answer is not to run make world, since its purpose is mostly to run that texlinks. Instead, make install-strip, meaning add TL_TARGET=install-strip to your envvers. Or maybe TL_TARGET=“install-strip check". Or don’t use Build and just run your own configure && make; that's all Build really is.

     OK, thanks; I’ll give your suggestions a shot (if my idea doesn’t work, at least.)  

Much obliged,
