The pattern memory of INITEX exhausts when building the port:

from /usr/ports/print/teTeX-latex2e/work/base/latex.log :

This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.4.5) (INITEX)  27 OCT 2004 18:31
(./latex.ltx (/usr/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/config/texsys.cfg)
\openout15 = `texsys.aux'.

./texsys.aux found

\@currdir set to: ./.

Assuming \openin and \input 
have the same search path.

Defining UNIX/DOS style filename parser.


New German Hyphenation Patterns `dehyphn' Rev.31 <2001-05-07> (WaS)
! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [pattern memory=20000].

If you really absolutely need more capacity,
you can ask a wizard to enlarge me.

Here is how much of TeX's memory you used:
 2848 strings out of 13683
 29560 string characters out of 76705
 43540 words of memory out of 250001
 3058 multiletter control sequences out of 10000+0
 3640 words of font info for 14 fonts, out of 100000 for 500
 14 hyphenation exceptions out of 659
 19i,0n,20p,202b,145s stack positions out of 300i,50n,60p,3000b,4000s
No pages of output.

This prevents a portupgrade of print/teTeX to 2.0.2_6


(apply a solution from the ushyph1.tex PR)
#cd /usr/ports/print/teTeX-latex2e


somehow increase the (pattern) memory size of INITEX
