I second this, I use the texlive ports from this url for a while now
on both i386 and amd64. Romain has done (and still does :) ) a really
great job in texlive porting, I really don't understand why is it not
merged in the ports tree yet.

I use portshaker to merge the texlive tree with freebsd's ports tree
it works like a charm.

Thanks Romain for this job, hope to see it integrated soon.
