I had been stalling the update of TeTeX. Then one day portmaster
just did it for me, either indirectly or I did it myself. I might
have uninstalled 1 to n ports manually.

I had not used TeTeX in a long time personally, nor I have yet the
chance (well, there was one but I used something else) to use
TexLive personally. There have not been any problems with TexLive in
relation to installation of other ports|packages.
