David/Jim/et al.:

   So am I! There was a /usr/share/texmf-config left from the texlive2011
installation. So, just to start clean I deleted all tex* subdirectories from
/usr/share, then re-ran installpkg and ...

Package texlive-20130530-i486-2_SBo.tgz installed.

   Thank you both so much for your time and effort on my behalf. It works now
just as it should.

   I suppose that if the texlive2011 did not need to be removed (which was
apparently done incompletely), the using upgradepkg rather than installpkg
would have cleaned up the texmf-config/ subdirectory.

   Your expertise on finding the problem(s) very much appreciated!

Carpe weekend,
