I've always preferred i-Installer to Fink for installing and updating 
these other components - a tribute to Gerben's good work here.  I'd 
like to see i-Installer keep going just for these, even if the 
community moves to direct TeXLive installation for TeX itself.  
Fortunately it appears these other components don't get updated as 
often, so maybe this is something we can take on without too much
