I was finally able to compile this one with tikz stuff :) but with
texlive2010 not with teTeX from ports(yet).

Followed your suggestions, except that I did a global install of pgf
file in /usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf/ folder, copied pgf zip file
there and unzipped it, ran mktexlsr as root and finally had to snatch

then it worked.  I might have to try something similar with the teTeX
system but it looks more complicated, there are more files and where
should I place them so that everything falls into place?  Anyhow,
thanks for the suggestions.
