This means that you have installed TL 2012 over TL 2011 and the
binaries and other files are pretty mixed. I do not know how to
recognize whether the pool files on your disk belong to TL 2011 or to
TL 2012. It is better to install TL 2012 again to
/usr/local/texlive/2012, otherwise you may have a lot of troubles that
will be difficult to fix. And be sure that you have the right
install-tl script.
