The texlive package provides only the binaries; all symlinked commands,

installed by each of the collection-* meta-packages. (Most of the
hyphen-* packages are empty except for a postinstall command which isn't
necessary for us. That's why a few collection-lang* aren't packaged,
since they include only those empty hyphen-* packages.) I'll be happy
to explain anything which isn't clear about these packages.
I do have one question about the various texlive-collection-* packages.
Do you have some automated way of getting the TeX Live package lists
that are in the .cygport files (TEXLIVE_TEXMF_PKGS, etc.)? The lists
can be gotten from the texlive.tlpdb file, but it doesn't seem obvious
to me how to automate this.
