There are many tex packages that are not working with the default tex  
(teTeX2), and tex-uhc-fonts-base is one of them.  All such packages  
are not included in the bulk build because "make show-depends-dirs"  
fails for them with the following message:

    ===> teTeX2 is not an acceptable TeX version for tex-eurosym-1.0nb3.
   *** Error code 1

The problem occurs when another package depends on them, as already  
noted by wiz in the recent bulk build ( 
pkgsrc-bulk/2005/12/29/0005.html).  In the case of tex-hlatex, it  
depends on tex-uhc-fonts-base, which is not included in the bulk  
build tree and accordingly never built.  So building tex-hlatex fails  
as follows:

   BULK> Package tex-uhc-fonts-base-1.0 not built yet, packaging...
   /usr/bin/make bulk-package PRECLEAN=no
   BULK> *** Package tex-uhc-fonts-base-1.0 seems broken and needs  
   -rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  213 Dec 17 16:11 /usr/pkgsrc/fonts/tex- 
   *** Error code 1

And tex-uhc-fonts-base/.broken.html has the following:

   [printdepends] command failed: /usr/bin/make show-depends-dir ===>  
teTeX2 is not an acceptable TeX version for tex-uhc-fonts-base-1.0.
   *** Error code 1

I'm not familiar enough with the bulk build code to fix this, but tex- 
hlatex is certainly working when TEX_DEFAULT is set to the correct
