This is what I did. First remove the directory /var/db/ports/teTeX and
contents, if it is there. Now install the teTeX port, selecting all the options
(especially DVIPSK and XDVIK) to be on. Next, go to
/usr/local/share/texmf/dvips/config/. Copy to config.ps.tetex to config.ps, and
then edit config.ps deleting the first "%" at the beginning of every line. My
guess is that at this point dvips should now be a4, but if not, run the program
texconfig and work your way around the menus.
