Hi there, i'm still using teTeX port and i'm desperate to upgrade to
something more up-to-date and so made a first attempt yesterday to install
your binaries but somehow got it wrong, or at least it didn't appear to
work for me. 

I extracted them into /usr/local/texlive/2009/bin/i386-freebsd7/ and
updated my path, which is how I understood it needed to be done from
reading the README.txt; however, this did not work for me. 

I wonder, would you be able to help by explaining the steps needed to
install them properly? up-to-now i've only ever used ports to install
software and i'm not familiar with installing binaries on FreeBSD
