The complete source code for TeX Live is available at http://www.tug.org/texlive/svn/. It can be downloaded by anyone using the rsync command described at this site; special svn permission is not required. Complete instructions for building these sources is at http://www.tug.org/texlive/build.html. MacTeX is compiled directly from this rsync copy; the install package is made by running Apple's packagemaker pointed to a copy of TeX Live installed from the rsync copy.
I am trying now to rsync; svn systematically stumbled upon some
patches. rsync seems to be slow
I am interested in dvisvgm because it could be used by the very newest asymptote
My question was how to build libkpathsea. May be special installer
could be arranged for some libraries and includes like MacTeXdev
