Argh... yes. I make this error _every_ time. In case I want to see the
files I notice it immediately, but in this case I just piped the output
into wc without looking at the output.

The benchmark category has 30 entries (ls /usr/ports/benchmarks | grep
-vE '(pkg|CVS|Makefile)' |wc -l) and there are 42 packages with latex in
the name (ls -d */*latex*| grep -vE '(pkg|CVS|Makefile)' |wc -l), and 36
additional portnames with "tex" but without "text" (yes, this excludes
texproc: ls -d */*tex*| grep -vE '(pkg|CVS|Makefile|text)' |wc -l), so I
think this is still a good idea (we don't have teTeX and similar ports
in this listing).
