so,this is a report, not a bug-report ;-)

starting tlmgr I get the following error:

root at spessart:/home/huygens# /usr/local/texlive/bin/i386-linux/tlmgr

kpsewhich is there ;-)

I'd have not read the documentation carefully - after setting PATH this
problem lo longer exists.

Maybe a hint for the installing user may be helpful
