There is no ports category "text". Nor is there a port called latex-texmf.
You probably mean print/texlive-texmf.

On my system, a quick
$ pkg info -r texlive-texmf
suggests that print/texlive-texmf is a dependency of print/texlive-full
(and by extension of several other TeX ports). However, a quick
$ make -C /usr/ports/print/texlive-base all-depends-list|grep texmf
suggests that print/texlive-base doesn't pull print/texlive-texmf in. So
maybe texlive-base instead of texlive-full is for you.
