Here we go:

# mkdir ~/texlive
# cd ~/texlive
# fetch http://www.home.hs-karlsruhe.de/~fado1011/texlive/patch-ports-graphics-poppler.txt http://www.home.hs-karlsruhe.de/~fado1011/texlive/shar-ports-print-texlive.txt
# cd /usr
# patch < ~/texlive/patch-ports-graphics-poppler.txt
# sh ~/texlive/shar-ports-print-texlive.txt
# portmaster graphics/poppler

If you don't have teTeX installed:
# portmaster print/texlive

If you have teTeX installed:
# portmaster -o print/texlive-texmf print/teTeX-texmf
# portmaster -o print/texlive-base print/teTeX-base
# portmaster -o print/texlive print/teTeX

The texlive-texmf distfile is huge and ftp.tug.org is slow. If somebody
knows any mirrors, please let me know!
