Sorry for the delayed reply.
install-tl.sh: /proj/twolf/local/TeX/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf: cannot create
This makes me think that somehow the texmf/web2c directory (among
others) was created readonly, so the files couldn't get written there.
fmtutil.cnf and friends are in the file archive/bin-kpathsea.zip in the
image. If you simply unzip that file into a temp directory, does it
work? I.e., are the files created? Is the directory left read/write?
The exact command run by install-compr.sh is unzip -o -qq zipfile, but
I'd be surprised if the options make a difference.
Also, maybe try with the current unzip?
FWIW, installing with the xml scheme on a Red Hat system does work ...
