I updated install-tl to do some postprocessing for xetex even in the
tl-portable case. This postprocessing configures and runs fc-cache.
You can get this new install-tl e.g. by going to
pressing the download button for revision 9752.
Before re-running tl-portable.bat with the new install-tl, remove
texmf-var from your ssd card to force regeneration of everything.
Unfortunately, in my test fc-cache failed on almost every single
font directory. This is a problem I encountered earlier in
connection with the semi-portable run from dvd install, but it could
not be reproduced by others. So maybe it is an artefact of my test
Please report back.
