The texlive package could be in the "meta-packages" folder.

COMPONENT_NAME=         texlive
COMPONENT_FMRI=         metapackages/texlive

If the user then runs : pkg install texlive

You will get the install-tl script from TUG (for the tlpkg and tlmgr).

This then allows to run the installer for the TeX Live package manager.

If you use the "default" install directory and set the selected set of packages to "basic",
it ends up about :

# du -sh /usr/local/texlive/
287M    /usr/local/texlive

So 287 MB is still acceptable for a basic install which has about all I need (I think).
