You can download the package from
It is based on wip/texlive-bin-2007.
The way lzma archives are handled is *wrong,* so the Makefile will
need to be edited if unlzma is installed in an unusual place (I simply
delcared a variable UNLZMA and set it to "/usr/pkg/bin/unlzma -k", as
I couldn't figure out how to add it as a tool, and needed latex
AFAICR, after installing the package I simply mounted the
texlive2008.iso ISO image, and copied "texmf/", "texmf-dist/", and
"texmf-doc/" under "/usr/pkgsrc/share/".
I also have the following in my .profile:
# TeX Live
export TEXMFMAIN TEXMFDIST TEXMFLOCAL TEXMFSYSCONFIG TEXMFSYSVAR
export TEXMFHOME TEXMFCONFIG TEXMFVAR

works without xdialog now, but I don't remember what changed.
