Thank you Siep — proceeding on that basis.

With Siep's kind assistance, TeX Live 2021 (pre-test) is now successfully installed (scheme: basic).  All appears to work, but there is one ?spurious? report in the transcript :

 The following environment variables contain the string "tex"
 (case-independent).  If you're doing anything but adding personal
 directories to the system paths, they may well cause trouble somewhere
 while running TeX.  If you encounter problems, try unsetting them.
 Please ignore spurious matches unrelated to TeX.


As the path contains "Pre-test", I can only assume that this variable was created by the installer itself — why, then, does it report this rather than simply ignore it as a known side-effect ?
