Before anything else, I wish to apologize to Koch: My Post Scriptum

No excuse.

I did check MacTeX' What's in the package first, but of course didn't  
check deeper into TeXLive even though it was the last item in the  
list of five.

I will be leaving in a few hours for my weekly spell of real  
construction and be back Monday and I will then download TeXLive and  
see. But I am confident that everything will work. If not, I will  
avail myself of your kind offer.

A pleasant weekend to all
