Paulo ,some comments on your list

> 103 of them are expected to be processed with xeLaTeX or luaLaTeX, but do
not work either because they expect the fonts to be installed, including
XITS:

> asanamath.tex

> Error of the type:

Your texlive appears mis-configured, this document works fine for me in
tl2021 (using Asana Math or Asana-Math names)

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{unicode-math}
%\setmathfont{Asana Math}
\setmathfont{Asana-Math}
\begin{document}
$x$
\end{document}

Note that if you are searching for fonts by font name rather than filename
with xelatex then you need to configure fontconfig
to look in the texlive tree, specifically add something like

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
<dir>/usr/local/texlive/2021/texmf-dist/fonts/opentype</dir>
<dir>/usr/local/texlive/2021/texmf-dist/fonts/truetype</dir>
</fontconfig>

lualatex should find Asana Math by name out of the box.

and xelatex when I try it.
just a warning that bold math is not available:

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape TU/Asana-Math(0)/b/n' undefined
(Font)              using TU/Asana-Math(0)/m/n' instead on input line 108.

[2] (./asanamath.aux)

LaTeX Font Warning: Some font shapes were not available, defaults
substituted.

It would be helpful to filter out all the cases that are documented as not
being in texlive, as in that case clearly the files not being in texlive is
not an error.

For example these are all documented as not being in texlive.
