+
+    <para>The <application>TeX Live</application> package is a comprehensive
+    TeX document production system.  It includes TEX, LaTeX2e, ConTEXt,
+    Metafont, MetaPost, BibTeX and many other programs; an extensive collection
+    of macros, fonts and documentation; and support for typesetting in many
+    different scripts from around the world.</para>
+
+    <para>It is necessary to use a binary installer for the first install.
+    This will provide the programs, the scripts, and a lot of supporting files
+    and documentation.  After that, you can rebuild the programs from source
+    by following the instructions for <xref linkend="texlive"/>.  The installer
+    is updated frequently, so its md5sum will change if it is newer than what
+    is shown below.  Newer versions of the installer are expected to work with
+    these instructions, for so long as they install to a
+    <filename class="directory">&texlive-year;/</filename> directory.</para>

+    <para>The <application>TeX Live</application> set of programs with its
+    supporting documents, fonts, and utilities is very large.  The upstream
+    maintainers recommend placing all files in a single directory structure.
+    BLFS recommends <filename class='directory'>/opt/texlive</filename>.</para>
+
+    <para>First, unpack the installer and change into the installer's
+    directory, <filename class='directory'>install-tl-<CCYYMMDD></filename>.
+    This directory name changes when the installer is updated, so replace
+    <CCYYMMDD> by the correct directory name.</para>

+    <note><para>The distribution binaries installed below use static linking
+    for general linux system libraries.  Additional libraries or interpreters
+    as specified in the dependencies section do not need to be present during
+    the install, but the programs that need them will not run until their
+    specific dependencies have been installed.</para></note>

+    the download will depend on your internet connection speed and the
+    number of packages selected.</para>
+
+    <para>After the package download is complete, the next step is to make sure
+    that the system can properly find the files.  If you set up your login

+    the needed paths by appending to the <filename>extrapaths.sh</filename> script.
+    The programs are always installed in an <ARCH>-linux subdirectory.  If
