I gave it a try today, on a Solaris8 machine for a start. The compilation
was smooth! The only problems I encountered were:
* format files for omega and lambda failed to build (error message below
comes from building omega.fmt; the one for lambda is similar):
This is Omega, Version 3.14159--1.23 (Web2C 7.3.7) (INIOMEGA)

CP file error (checking size)
! Translation process \OCPebcdic=ebcdic not loadable: Bad ocp file.
! Emergency stop.
* missing make directives for freetype programs (ttf2pk, ttf2tfm):
make: Entering directory `texlive/Build/source.development/freetype'
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
* texdoctk not being installed with other binaries. I think this is due to
the missing entry in Build/source.development/TeX/texk/configure.in
