Comment (by vinc17 at macports.org):

 OK, it seems that the post-activate phase didn't run. "port install
 texlive_base" failed at the activate phase due to a conflict with teTeX.
 So, I deactivated teTeX and activated texlive_base with "port activate
 texlive_base". This is probably a design bug in MacPorts; the post-
 activate phase should be replaced by a phase that is run both after the
 install phase in direct mode and after the activate phase in image mode.
 And if MacPorts cannot know which port the links belong to, this is nasty.
 Can't the links be installed in destroot? In Debian, the links are in one
 of the architecture-independent packages (i.e. not with the other
 vin:~> dpkg -L texlive-latex-base | grep /usr/bin/
 So, I suppose there is a solution (are they hardcoded?).
