The textproc/tkxmlive port has nothing to do with TeXLive. 

Currently, the TeXLive distribution of TeX is not in ports. Probably because
it uses its own configuration script and package manager.

But TeXLive is not difficult to install. I've documented my installation on my
UNIX miscellanea page: 

If you want to use ports that depend on TeX but are not in TeXLive (like
e.g. auctex) you have to patch those ports' Makefiles before installing or
upgrading them. My diff file for print/auctex is shown below.
