You definitely mixing different things here. First, you reporting about
some error with biblatex and patching file 'texcount.pl'. They are
independent from each other.
Second, I assume that by 'texmf-20130530' you mean TeX Live distribution
released at 2013-05-30.
The problem with biblatex can be resolved if you update your TeX Live
tlmgr update --self --all
Your example works fine in my TeX Live installation (2013, updated right
As for the first, report different problems in different topics.
Prepare small example showing a problem with texcount and report.
