No, I want the opposite. For example, I want to create a replacement
for `texlive-basic' that does nothing except fulfilling the
dependency. This is, after installing this dummy `texlive-basic',
`port' shall believe that `texlive-basic' is indeed installed.
Ditto for all other `texlive-*' ports. Ideally, I would like to have
all this stuff in a single file, to be automatically created from the
actual list of `texlive-*' ports as in texlive-dummy-opensuse,
and following lines.

Thanks; I've already seen such meta-packages. One of them is actually
`texlive' itself :-)
