Maybe I'm wrong, but symlinks on this CD are broken, or in other words
unreadable under FreeBSD...The only solution was for me to copy whole CD
contents on hard drive an then install from it.
But, I would rather ask... is the possibility include TeXlive into ports
tree. Why? This CD seems to be more up to date and contains more useful
tools...(and it's installed from source as well) and has better support
for other languages.
