    +	rm -Rf ${WRKDIST}/texmf-dist/source

It should not be done except at explicit user request.

    Is this directory required for tl to run? I am not sure.

No, it is not required for TL to run.  But it is, well, the sources.
They must be included in the distribution, for legal reasons among others.
