 I am running Mac OS X 10.7.2, Xcode 4.2. I can do "port install octave-
 devel +debug"
 with no problem; however "port install octave-devel +debug +docs"
 continually fails.
 MacPorts claims I have do not have a working TeX binary tex installed
 anywhere in my
 PATH. See below.

 In fact I use TeX constantly. My PATH contains "/usr/texbin" which is a
 symbolic link to "/usr/local/texlive/2011/bin/x86_64-darwin" which
 contains tex. I have no idea why
 MacPorts cannot find tex in my PATH.

 This is not a Lion problem. I had the same problem porting octave-devel
 +docs in
 OS X 10.6.

 Here is the error:
 :info:build ../../run-octave -f -q -H ./mk_doc_cache.m doc-cache
 ../../scripts/DOCSTRINGS ../../src/DOCSTRINGS || { rm -f doc-cache; exit
 1; }
 :info:build TEXINPUTS="./..:$TEXINPUTS" \
 :info:build     MAKEINFO='/bin/sh
 aux/missing --run makeinfo   -I .' \
 :info:build     /opt/local/bin/texi2dvi octave.texi
 :info:build You don't have a working TeX binary (tex) installed anywhere
 :info:build your PATH, and texi2dvi cannot proceed without one.  If you
 want to use
 :info:build this script, you'll need to install TeX (if you don't have it)
 or change
 :info:build your PATH or TEX environment variable (if you do).  See the
 :info:build output for more details.
 :info:build For information about obtaining TeX, please see
 http://www.tug.org.  If
 :info:build you happen to be using Debian, you can get it with this
 :info:build   apt-get install tetex-bin
 :info:build make[3]: *** [octave.dvi] Error 1
