One possible solution for this problem whould be to use a latex logic
in mk/, like what we have for emacs vs. xemacs or ghostscript, to be
able to have dependancie about whatever latex implementation, or a
subset of versions.
Back in April, i proposed a mk/latex.mk for this :
http://mail-index.netbsd.org/tech-pkg/2005/04/06/0050.html and pkg/30012
It is not perfect, and probably buggy, but it could help improving
the latex environment under pkgsrc, and also clean the way latex
packages are installed
