    Unknown directive ...longd... , please fix it! at /usr/local/texlive/ 
    2008/tlpkg/TeXLive/TLPOBJ.pm line 232, <TMP> line 80290.

It looks like your tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb file has been corrupted or
truncated somehow.  I believe that error message is reporting the entire
line as it was found, and it should not just be "longd".  (Clearly the
start of "longdesc", one of the directives.)

The best recovery would be if you have a recent copy of the
texlive.tlpdb file you can just put into place.  Let me know if you need
to pursue some other way ...
