Indeed, apalike.bst says 

% This style should be used with the `apalike' LaTeX style (apalike.sty).

but apalike.sty is not in TL 2008 (nor the 2009 branch AFAIS). 

The bad news is that there are two apalike.sty on CTAN, one in
bibtex/contrib/apalike, one in bibtex/contrib/germbib, and the latter
one looks newer by the file date (and it uses \refname and \bibname
instead of hardcoded strings):
