I still think this is a proplem of poppler, so it should be fixed
there. However, I agree the way I go about fixing it is not optimal.

So I have updated the patch. Still not satisfactory, but maybe a
little better.

Do you by any chance remember all the tetex related things you needed
to remove? I'd like to add them to CONFLICTS.

Thanks for that one, it didn't cause problems with doxygen or any of the
tex docs I have lying around, so I suppose this one was difficult to find.

Doing it that way was a bad idea from the start. You'll like the way
I do it in the updated patch better.

That shouldn't be working, because generate-plist is run before
do-install. Run:
# pkg_info -Lx texlive-texmf

And check whether it lists any files.

Yes, definitely!
