The package print/tex-hugelatex depends explicitly on teTeX-bin, which is teTeX 1.something. I'm using teTeX2. So when I went to install the print/tex-jadetex package, it started to pull in teTeX-bin, which conflicts with teTeX2.
So I tried to make tex-hugelatex work with teTeX2. In addition to changing the explicit depend on teTeX to one on teTeX2, I had to change the package. The hugelatex.fmt file never got generated.
try to install print/tex-jadetex, watch it try to install teTeX and fail.
There are really two problems. One is how to support teTeX2, the other is how to not unsupport teTeX(1). I have a diff I'll attach to this PR which uses the "fmtutil --byfmt=hugelatex" command to generate the format. This works right with teTeX2. The command also is present in teTeX(1), so it may also work right for it too.
