[tex-live] Binaries don't compile

As the kpsewhich provided with TL2008's install script doesn't work on my
system (it gives a floating point error), I decided to compiled the binaries

First I did

rsync -a --exclude=.svn tug.org::tldevsrc/Build/source .

in an empty directory, then I went into source/ and did

./configure --without-xindy

as I don't need xindy.

During configure I got several times the error

checking where the main texmf tree is located... not found
configure: WARNING: No texmf tree found at ${prefix}/share/texmf.
* Error: The main texmf tree was not found.                     *

but I'm not sure if it's important as I only want to build the programs.

Configure finishes without any other error.

However, when I compile (through make), I get

g++ -I../../libs/icu-xetex/common -I./../../libs/icu-xetex/common -I./../../libs/icu-xetex/layout -DLE_USE_CMEMORY -I./../../libs/freetype2/include  -g -O2 -DXETEX_OTHER -c xetexdir/XeTeXFontInst_FT2.cpp -o XeTeXFontInst_FT2.o
make[2]: *** No rule to make target ../../libs/freetype2/.libs/libfreetype.a', needed by xetex'.  Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory /usr/local/testSpace/texl/source/texk/web2c'
make[1]: *** [all] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory /usr/local/testSpace/texl/source/texk'
make: *** [all] Error 1

What went wrong?
