Well, started about 0020 or some thing, now 0330 and I've got about 1GB of files installed...

Downloaded TeXLives DVD ISO and I'm nearing the end of a full install scheme to /usr/Programs/texlive/2007.

I dunno if it will work, even if I could get it to work in PBI format I'm not sure if I'd want to upload the mother but hey, it's a shot !

So far all of the libs needed by the freebsd binaries seem to be found installed, that's good.. The system is so freaking huge I'd probably need an army of TeX masters just to write unit tests to find out what works and doesn't.

So far most of the bulk seems to be the omni-lingual nature

I expect that it will work as far as the tests outlighted in the TeXLive guide, probably build the various TeX documents I've got.. My Vi-User-HOWTO, my novel, new [SAS] Trooper Tryout SOP, a few sections of the SOP Rewrites, etc.

I also have a porting doc handy about the OpenBSD port written by the guy that seems to have done most of the work on OpenBSD.

First, I'll try a PBI but I expect short of stripping it down to English only files or maybe even the big 6 that it'll be to huge to move around easy. I want to see how I can compact this because there is about 1.1GB of files installed right now out of the 1.7GB of ISO which I unzipped from a 935MB Archive :-). Any way you slice it that is pretty freaking big to PBI... be it build, upload, or download lol.

If I can, I'd like to try a port for FreeBSD but assuming even the install I just did _works_, I'm not sure if I would like the best way of installing it from ports... We'll see what happens.

Depending on how work'n or broke'n it is I suppose depends on how a port would work out.

Formats will be built for each user as needed.  If you wish to install
all formats at once, for everyone on your system, run fmtutil-sys --all.

For future global configuration, edit files in /usr/Programs/texlive/2007/texmf-var
(or run texconfig or texconfig-sys).

Add /usr/Programs/texlive/2007/texmf/doc/man to MANPATH.
Add /usr/Programs/texlive/2007/texmf/doc/info to INFOPATH.
Most importantly, add /usr/Programs/texlive/2007/bin/i386-freebsd
  to your PATH for current and future sessions.
