Add a description of 'make upload-distfiles' to the TeXlive package section.

TeXlive packages are unusual in avoiding direct downloads from the upstream
CTAN repository.  Therefore, developers must manually upload the appropriate
distfiles.  To help avoid forgetting this step, add a description to the
Pkgsrc Guide in the section describing TeXlive packages.
