under Windows 10 I just downloaded TL pretest 2021 with

rsync -a -v -L --delete --exclude="mactex*" 
rsync:// .

unzipped into f:\mirror-texlive-pretest and installed with

cd install-tl-20210321

install-tl-windows.bat -repository ../tlpretest

I selected complete install into c:/TeX, everything went fine except 
that I get the warning / failure notice

pre-generating all format files, be patient...

running fmtutil-sys 
--no-error-if-no-engine=luajithbtex,luajittex,mfluajit --no-strict --all ...

installation reported above

Probably I myself will never need ptex2pdf, but the error message could 
by annoying to others.

Ciao and thanks for the good work
