The only remaining problem will be dependencies within the
port management system, e. g. ports requiring a TeX distribution
which defaults to teTeX...

By the way, would it be possible or desired to introduce a
setting to /etc/make.conf regarding _which_ TeX distribution
to use, e. g. WITH_TEX=texlive (will install TeXlive) or
WITH_TEX=teTeX (will install teTeX) if a dependency of TeX
is requested?
