John Burt and Herbert Schulz,

John, thanks for providing this information. Herb, thanks for noticing Fink and asking
for this specific piece of information.

Now it is completely clear what happened, because the TeX Live install script
explicitly said that your tar file was for the wrong architecture. You report

Until recently, Macs could run ppc code. But recent versions of the operating
system don’t have that piece of software.
