TeXLive now has FreeBSD binary packages (i386 & amd64) as well. > > Suggestion: try teTeX.

There are a lot of things that TeXLive has that teTeX doesn't; - latin modern fonts [http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/latin-modern] - tex gyre fonts [http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/e-foundry/tex-gyre/] Both of these font families have a much greater range of diacretical markers available. And they look very good. Latin Modern is an expanded and improved version of Computer Modern. Both families are written as OpenType fonts. - XeTeX [http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?site_id=nrsi&item_id=xetex] Better support for typesetting in non-european languages. - LuaTeX [http://www.luatex.org/] Integration of the Lua scripting language into TeX. This will make TeX more powerfull, and the writing of macro packages easier. - conTeXt [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ConTeXt] - more recent releases, with updated macro packages. - more macro packages available and integrated.
