Take a look at ports-mgmt/portshaker-config :)

Portshaker is basically a tool which allows you to merge multiple 
ports-trees into one. With portshaker-config you can enable the texlive 
part of the portstree. Allthough it mentions it is still experimental I 
have been using this setup for quite some time now and did not encounter 
any problems, allthough portupgrade had some problems updating 
everything correctly from texlive2008 to 2009.
