While browsing through the list, I noticed that teTeX has an error;
however this appears to be due to the long fetching time -- it takes
1880 seconds just to fetch the first distfile.

Seeing as 68 ports depend on this one, plus the fact that teTeX is _the_
LaTeX environment on FreeBSD, it would be a shame if this was the reason
that no package is produced.

Maybe the package build scripts should be updated not to include the fetch
phase in the total build time?
