Hi Patrick,

Just to say that "duplicity" usually means something like "deceitful and
dishonest behaviour" - duplication is what you want to avoid!  I only
mention it because this is a slip that could get you into serious
trouble in the wrong context!!  :-)

You are right about the ports tree and my way round this has been to edit
the relevant port Makefie and simply remove the dependency under
BUILD_DEPENDS, LIB_DEPENDS and RUN_DEPENDS.  Most things then find
TeXLive and build themselves nicely after that. There may be an automated
way of doing this but I haven't found it yet.
