For a high-level overview of building TeX Live, see
http://tug.org/texlive/build.html. In brief:
- To configure and make the source tree, run ./Build.
This builds in subdirectory Work/, and installs into subdirectory inst/.
- To build (mostly) without optimization, run ./Build --debug.
- If the make fails and you want to rebuild without starting from scratch:
cd Work/whatever/subdir && make
Email email@example.com if problems.
(Nearly everything the Build script does can be overridden via
environment variables; just take a look to see the names.)
Many more details about the TL build system, such as configuring to work
on a single program, adding new programs or libraries, documentation
about the many pieces of the system, etc., are in the doc/tlbuild*
document and the sibling README* files here (which are generated from
Build information for some of the platforms.
