Dear Folk,

	Both the port command and a direct download from 
http://distfiles.macports.org/texlive-latex/ of 
texlive-latex-15495.tar.bz2 refuse to complete. What can be done to the 
file to correct that state?

	I re-aimed my browser at 
http://lil.fr.distfiles.macports.org/texlive-latex/ and successfully 
downloaded the proper file, texlive-latex-15495.tar.bz2 but I don't know 
exactly where in the /opt/local/ tree to place it. I know it is 
somewhere under /opt/local/var but do not know where to put it so it can 
be seen by port as being in place for the texlive compile sequence.
