Good work (I wish TL2003 had worked as smoothly, but there is still
plenty of time to break things)!

My linux machine lacks a CD reader, so I ran "install-tl.sh" on an SGI
box, ignored the updmap errors, then NFS mounted from linux to finish the
install by running updmap and make some some formats.  I reorganized the
texmf-local tree, installed the last ConTeXt, installed a font
using texfont.pl, and even formated a few documents:

This is pdfeTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.11c-beta-20040208-2.1 (Web2C 7.5.2)
(format=cont-en 2004.2.17)  17 FEB 2004 13:12
entering extended mode
 %&-line parsing enabled.
**&cont-en t2.tex

ConTeXt  ver: 2004.1.25  fmt: 2004.2.17  int: english  mes: english

TL Issues:

readme.html:  texmf/doc --> texmf-dist/doc

texfont.pl mapped ../TeX/TL2004... to lowercase

Side issues:

xpdf 3.0 dies on page 4 or so of:


(using either SGI Irix or linux) and displays some colors incorrectly
(despite having "xpdf.installCmap:  true").  Probably an xpdf bug, but
people here trust xpdf over pdftex, so guess who will be blamed.
