Not much luck here, first of all, I noticed, that teTeX-base now depends
on texihtml, however you are passing these CONFIGURE_ARGS:
+               --without-texinfo \
+               --without-texi2html \

So is texihtml necessary or not?

The pkg-plist change for teTeX-texmf seems excessive. Is 1MB diff really

But lets do the runtime errors I encountered (just some quick tests). I
patch my ports-tree, ran make index, then portupgrade teTeX\* dvipsk-tetex

o xdvi is complaining:
xdvi: Warning: Unable to find "xdvi.cfg"!
Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
Warning: Cannot convert string "fixed" to type FontSet

ktracing shows, that it tries to open ./xdvi.cfg, then $HOME/texmf/xdvi/
and then ./xdvi.cfg again.

o pdftex and pdflatex are gone (are pdfetex and pdfelatex the

o pdfelatex can't find any fonts:
gsftopk: fatal: map file `psfonts_t1.map' not found.
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for phvbo8r.
kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.

Warning: pdfelatex (file phvbo8r): Font phvbo8r at 662 not found

o dvips won't work
dvips -Ppdf atg.dvi
This is dvips(k) 5.94b Copyright 2004 Radical Eye Software (www.radicaleye.com)
' TeX output 2005.01.08:0003' -> atg.ps
dvips: ! Couldn't find header file tex.pro
*** Error code 1

o at least latex and xdvi work (modulo annoying warnings)

So, what went wrong?
