Ere I am, J. H., the ghost in the machine. :-)

I've never tried TeXLive, I have to admit, because I NEVER had ANY
problem using the teTeX package. And yes, I don't build it from
source because pkg_add -r is so much comfortable.

There are some tools that are a good "put aside" for teTeX, such
as xpdf (which brings also pdftotext), and gv, dvitty, xdvi.

It would be nice to hear what - in such a case - has been the
problem with teTeX that TeXLive then solved. As I said, I never
found myself in such a situation, and I'm using LaTeX for
nearly everything.
