texlive install scripts are unbearably slow
This has bugged me for a while. I spend quite a bit of time on pkgsrc
performance to make it as fast as possible, but I'm told there's no fix
for the fact that texlive-collection-all (a meta package that literally
only runs pkg_add) takes nearly 3 hours to build simply due to the
texlive install scripts rebuilding various databases.
Is there really nothing we can do to solve this? I don't know tex at
all, and don't know why these can't be provided by individual packages
and combined at install time, or some other caching mechanism.
If someone can point me to a potential solution I'm more than happy to
work on it.
