Can someone explain to me how this package is supposed to work?
"make print-build-depends-list" gives me:

    This package requires package(s) "TeXfamily-share-1.2.1nb5
    bison-1.875nb1 dialog-0.6znb2 freetype-lib-1.3.1nb1 gmake-3.80nb3
    ja-vflib-lib-2.24.2 libtool-base-1.5.6nb1 libwww-5.4.0nb2
    m4-1.4nb1 perl-5.8.4 png-1.2.5nb5 t1lib-5.0.2nb1 teTeX-2.0.2nb1
    teTeX-bin-2.0.2nb1 teTeX-share-2.0.2 teTeX-sharesrc-2.0.2
    texi2html-1.64nb1 x11-links-0.23" to build.

Sure. It's requring teTeX-bin-2.0.2nb1, teTeX-share-2.0.2. All fine so far.
But then after it gets all of its dependencies installed, it's got this
kinda stuff in the makefile:

TETEX_DIR=      ${_PKGSRCDIR}/print/teTeX-bin/${WRKDIR:T}/teTeX-src-2.0.2
WRKSRC=         ${TETEX_DIR}

So it seems to go to try to install teTeX1, which of course needs
teTeX1-share, which is not compatable with teTeX-share (version 2).

As well, I'm kinda wondering about the name, 'texfamily' instead of
