All you normally have to do is go to texlive/trunk/Build/source/ and  
run the Build script located there; this should make everything  
(within the Work dir that it creates). The binaries end up in Build/ 

However, it sounds like the configure scripts are undergoing some  
changes, so I don't know if the overall process works right now.
