You can check the porters handbook : http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/porters-handbook/index.html

This document should also be available locally in your FreeBSD installation - mine is in (EN version) /usr/share/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/porters-handbook

If I understand correctly from the latest emails on the *tex ports, it seems like it is a very big job. It may be a good idea to start with a smaller port to get used to it first.

I speak for myself, not my employer. Contents may be hot. Slippery when wet. Reading disclaimers makes you go blind. Writing them is worse. You have been Warned.
