I am now trying to install print/teTeX.  With some fiddling I have
gotten it to almost install.  Now I'm having a problem when it gets to
the installation of print/dvipsk-tetex.  Below is the error?  Can
anybody point me in the right direction?  I'm running FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE.

Thanks for your time!
