This is really strange.  That problem should be gone for months now.
I tried purifyeps and texloganalyser from the list you gave and both
worked for me on TL'09 (should be the same for TL'10).  (Well,
purifyeps actually failed but due to missing perl module - the script
itself was found.)

What does the 'runscript --version' say?
