I've never used TeX, so I'm not really the best person to ask; and I
don't think I could test a fix for the build script, given how large
TeXlive is.

But the BLFS archives, particularly this post:
http://osdir.com/ml/blfs-dev/2015-06/msg00062.html

point at this modification to the install script:

https://github.com/elkrejzi/system-management/blob/master/buildscripts/buildtexlive#L52

as being necessary.
Untested patch (against aports)attached.

 Nobody ever said that the texlive-20150521-source is enough to get a 
 running/working system. You need the Master/texmf-dist tree, also in svn.

 There you find
	Master/texmf-dist/scripts/texlive/mktexlsr.pl
 I repeat: Taking the source.tar.gz, compiling, and using the inst
 directory will *NOT* give you a working TeX system. The source tar is
 only used for building the binaries *to*be*dropped* into Master/bin/‚ȧARCH>/

Thanks for looking at it.

The patch does not seem to fix the issue totally. But I believe it is a
step in the right direction so I applied it (with a minor fix:
s/$DEST/$pkgdir/)
