many thanks for the links. I am trying to follow your suggestion and what
I can glean from the cblfs build of texlive-2008 which gave fairly detailed
instructions. The points I would like some clarity on are:-
POINT 1: are additional stuff from tug.org necessary and if so where to put
For the build I am planning, I downloaded these tarballs from
Are (c) and (d) necessary and where do they go?
POINT 2: are so-called 'format files' still necessary or useful?
For prior preparation for a cblfs/texlive-2008 build
(http://cblfs.cross-lfs.org/index.php/TeXLive) I had also downloaded stuff
from PurdueUniversity cblfs-described as ('format files' ):-
I am unsure if these are still useful. IF these 'format files' are still
necessary/useful could you or anyone else on list advise
if prior to running sh configure they are placed in the texlive-20091107-
texmf directory or otherwise ?
POINT 3: Is /usr/bin/man destroyed for installations ! in /usr ?
Your-discussion on blfs-dev suggests that /usr/bin/man is overwritten by
installing texlive-2009. If one is not installing in /usr OR if one sets
--mandir=/whatever is this still so?
