Strange. I cannot reproduce the "skipping forcibly removed ..." stuff,
only the fontinst warning.

I did:
	cd /media/TLDVD
	# install full scheme
	export PATH=....
	tlmgr option location ftp://gd.tuwien.ac.at/publishing/tex/CTAN/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008
	tlmgr update bin-texlive texlive.infra
	tlmgr update --all
	...loads of packages updaes, many packages auto-installed
	tlmgr update --list
	tlmgr: should not happen, please report: fontinst.x86_64-linux mentioned, but neither new nor forcibly removed

So yes, that bug has to be fixed. I will check for that.

But the forcibly removed packages really suprise me ...

Well, fixing it is easy:

> skipping forcibly removed package chembst (collection-bibtexextra)
> skipping forcibly removed package gene-logic (collection-science)
> skipping forcibly removed package isomath (collection-mathextra)
> skipping forcibly removed package xelibertine (collection-xetex)

Just call
	tlmgr install collection-bibtexextra collection-science collection-mathextra collection-xetex

or the tlmgr install with these packages as names.

Best wishes
