Very peculiar. I'm having trouble imagining why that is.

It's a bit odd to have r and not x on a directory, but I can't see that
that is the problem, since clearly you have permission to write it.
I can do the unzip manually into the correct location and re-run the
installation (tomorrow). I didn't think the install removes the directory
prior to install, does it?
No, it doesn't. I'm not sure if doing the unzip manually will help, it
might confuse things worse, but I guess it's worth a try. (I've only
ever tried installing into a new directory.)
If you run install-tl.sh --debug, you'll get a bunch more output, that
might help pinpoint the problem. For truly voluminous output, we might
have to resort to bash -vx install-tl.sh --debug.
I can also try to dig up a solaris 5.8 machine to try on, if need be.
