I just am wrapping up the TeXLive update and did see a couple of issues
when building from ports. First, texlive-infra has been merged into
texlive-tlmgr, so I had to delete texlive-infra, first. (pkg delete -f
texlive-infra). Due to some re-factoring of the code I also had to delete
texlive-texmf (also using "-f"). Then I updated taxlive-base and
texlive-tlmgr and re-installed texlive-mf and, finally, updated all of the
tex- ports. (The last of these is still building as I type this.)
At this point, it looks good, but it was far from smooth for me, even
beyond the entry in ports/UPDATING.
Good luck in getting all of the sources and getting it all to build.
Building TeX was a pain way back in the late 70s when I was building it on
VMS (or maybe IAS). That does not seem to have changed much in the ensuing
three and a half decades.
