OK...I commented out the 'batch' entry in make.conf.  Now I get this
error message:

===>  dvips-5.76 conflicts with installed package(s): 

The whole problem is that I am trying to get muttprint to work, and my
understanding is that it is dependent on teTeX for its operation.  But
when I tried to print I got an error message telling me that the print
operation needs to see dvips.  So I'm not exactly sure what is going on
