 I have a fresh macports installation.

 I have installed gcc42 and dependents.  All OK so far.

 I go to install octave, and it needs to install about 25 dependencies.
 When it reached teTex 3.0_5 there was a problem.  It compiled and
 installed, but failed to activate.  I know it installed because it shows
 up in the list of installed ports (without being tagged as activated).

 Here is the output of the build/install...

 james-stephens-computer:~ jamesstephens$ port installed

   gcc42 @4.2.4_0 (active)
   gmp @4.2.2_1 (active)

 Please let me know if I am doing something silly here.  Thanks in advance
 for the help.
