The teTeX DESCR has basically said this for some time. In the meantime
most of the guts were replaced with their texlive counterparts anyway.

As such, I've viewed "print/teTeX" as an effective meta-package that
continued to install a fairly complete (possibly overkill?) TeX system
from mostly texlive components.
Last I looked, I didn't see any equivalent meta-package for "texlive".
Will there be one? Otherwise, "texlive" seems to be completely "a la
carte" and I haven't tried wading through it to figure out the pieces
necessary for me.
Suggestions so I know what to expect post-pkgsrc-2016Q3?
