Default "Lightweight" TeX setup for NetBSD 5

For TeX typesetting, just plain TeX is enough for my purposes. I don't use LaTeX, nor do I want to download a full teTeX installation. I find the following set of packages is sufficient:

Code:
dialog
dvipsk
ghostscript
ghostscript-fonts
jpeg
kpathsea
lcms
libpaper
perl
png
poppler
ptexenc
t1lib
tex-amsfonts
tex-amsfonts-doc
tex-cm
tex-cm-doc
tex-dvips                                                                                          tex-hyphen-base
texlive-tetex
tex-misc
tex-plain
tex-tetex
tex-tex
tex-tex-gyre-doc
tex-texlive.infra
tiff
web2c
xdvik
xz
This provides plain TeX, xdvi, mf, dvips and ps2pdf. This set of packages is "complete" in that it has no other package dependencies. As the pkgsrc collection is continually being changed, the necessary packages may not be the same by the time you read this.

The total size of the .tgz files for these packages is about 55 MB, which is "lightweight" compared to teTeX which weighs in at 237 MB.

For context, the above works on NetBSD 5.1.2 release i386, and I suspect it should work for any NetBSD 5.*. I have not tried 6 beta. The packages are available from:

You're welcome. In the medium term, the details may change, and only the idea will survive.
