Your list looks far from complete; I get 273 binaries on Linux/i386.

You definitely didn't get them all installed (assuming they were  
built successfully).

I believe you need a working texinfo installed. (You just built one  
as part of TL, but the "install" process that's part of the build  
doesn't know how to use it.)

You might also need an existing TeX installation on the build  
machine; I'm not sure of that at the moment.
