If you could post back with that, it would be great.


> Notes for builders
> ==================
> If you try building TeXlive 2009 on FreeBSD 8.X it may be useful to set
> the following in your shell environment:
>     export TL_MAKE='gmake'
>     export TL_CONF_BANNER='--with-tex-banner="TeX Live 2009/FreeBSD"'
>     export TL_CONFIGURE_ARGS='--without-graphite'
> You can get a source snapshot of TeXlive 2009 following the instructions
> at <http://www.tug.org/texlive/>.  I used rsync to grab a snapshot of
> the sources, as described in <http://www.tug.org/texlive/svn/>.  Then I
> followed the instructions at <http://www.tug.org/texlive/build.html> to
> build my own snapshot on FreeBSD 9.X.

Thanks for the information
