How do you manage dependency tracking errors?  The last time I've
installed it the way you do was on Slackware and since it doesn't do any
dependency tracking there were no problems (as long as the binaries were
in PATH).  I can imagine ports and pkg tools on FreeBSD complaining
about missing TeX packages, and AFAIK Debian based Linux distributions
will certainly complain (I think there is a workaround, but it involves
messing with dpkg).
