do you want to install TeXlive, or do you want to compile the programs from
source (that is what ./Build does).  In the later case you may have to move
the installed binaries to a different location and you'll need zillions
(well a very large number) of support files.

The ./Build script does (essentially)
   make install
   make check
and 'make check' in texk/web2c found that one of the 46 tests failed.  All
tests are supposed to pass, a failed test indicates some problem.

The output (if any) from each test is followed by 'PASS: XXX' if test XXX
passes or by 'FAIL: XXX' if test XXX fails.  Unfortunately this part was
missing in the attached error log.

Looks good, but one (or more) of the binaries may cause problems.
