The system-tetex.info files mainly describes the creation of sym-links:

	ln -s /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf		%i/share/texmf
	ln -s /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local	%i/etc/texmf.local
	ln -s /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.macosx	%i/share/texmf.macosx
	ln -s %p/share/texmf.macosx			%i/share/texmf.os
	ln -s %p/etc/texmf.local			%i/share/texmf.local
	ln -s /usr/local/teTeX/texmf.cnf		%i
	ln -s /usr/local/teTeX/include/kpathsea 	%i/include/kpathsea
	ln -s /usr/local/teTeX/lib/libkpathsea.a	%i/lib/libkpathsea.a
	ln -s /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/mktexlsr %i/ 

The variables %i and %p are meaningful for Fink. If you don't want to  
create your local system-tetex.info file, then do

	sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/teTeX/share /usr/local/teTeX/include /usr/ 
local/teTeX/lib /usr/local/teTeX/bin
	sudo ln -s /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf		/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf
	sudo ln -s /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.local		/usr/local/teTeX/share/ 
	sudo ln -s /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.texlive	/usr/local/teTeX/share/ 
	sudo ln -s /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.cnf		/usr/local/teTeX/texmf.cnf
	sudo ln -s /usr/local/gwTeX/include		/usr/local/teTeX/include
	sudo ln -s /usr/local/gwTeX/bin			/usr/local/teTeX/bin

Mit friedvollen Grüßen


Seelsorge statt Krankenkasse: das ist neu und liberal, die wähl' ich!
