    just ./install-tl within the current svn tex-live/trunk/Master
    directory, with install "I" into /usr/local/texlive/2008/ directory.

On x86_64-linux, I'm guessing.  Indeed, those symlinks are not present
in that bin dir.  Probably some missynchronization of fmtutil.cnf at the
time the binaries were built.  It'll get fixed with the final builds.

    and it runs through ok in valgrind (but shows errors).

"Runs ok but shows errors"?  Aren't those contradictory?
Anyway, what errors?  Backtrace from the core shows a crash in sscanf in
luatexdir/utils.c:1550, ie,
 if (sscanf((const char *) &str_pool[in], " %lf %lf %lf %lf "

Apparently because `in' is a too-large number (198758976)
which in turn is because that is the value of str_start[2103247].
str_start[2103246] is ok (== 3), so I guess we've fallen off the end of
the pool (into the deep end :).

I don't think this is related to the DISABLE_OUTLINE or struct changes.
