Hi!

Thanks for throughout message about possibilities of
porting TexLive to FreeBSD. This work is highly
appeciated!

Personally, I think we should stick with #2 of your plan,
as going with #3 will bring too many ports (thousands?)
ports in our tree, which will be a nightmare to handle.
I don't think we're ready for such a number of new ports
in the three, even xorg with hundereds of ports slow
down ports tree utils a lot. Also, I don't think TeX users
ever want this kind of granularity. After all teTeX was
only several ports.

You may be also willing to take a look at this page, describing
TeXLive ports infrastructure for OpenBSD:

Good luck!
