Ignoring the foreign language ports, there are 35 that contain "latex" in the INDEX. Some of these are in other places for a reason (biology/chemeq, mail/mahogany (latex2html dependency?), and math/naturalmath), but there are 24 ports in print and 8 in textproc.
The most obvious problem is that html2latex and htmltolatex are in different directories (html2latex in textproc and htmltolatex in print (y2l is in textproc as well)).
The 8 ports that are currently in textproc should be considered for movement to print. Although print seems like an odd place for them to me, it appears to be the majority decision.
How-To-Repeat: $ locate latex | grep pkg-descr | grep ports | grep -v korean | grep -v japanese
$ grep -i latex /usr/ports/INDEX | cut -d\| -f2 | grep -v korean | grep -v chinese | grep -v japanese | grep -v hebrew
This is the only currently-unassigned repocopy PR, so I'll sign up
to look at it. The solution proposed here isn't optimal -- really,
I think you could make the argument that most of the listed ports
in "print" really belong in either converters, or possibly textproc.
There may be enough ports here for a virtual category, which might
be one way of finessing the problem.

New major category "tex":
- everything related
- lyx: belongs IMHO into editor
- lout: reading the pkg-descr and the hompage I don't see why it
should belong into tex... it's "LaTeX like", but that's all
I will be available to get hired in April 2004.

This PR will probably be obsoleted by the upcoming "tex" physical
category for ports.
Someone else more interested in the repocopy work needed to
establish the 'tex' category should take this one on.
Nobody volunteered for the tex category. Mark is right IMHO saying that
some ports are ok either in print or in textproc. Somebody needed to
make the step and kill this PR so that it doesn't rot in GNATS forever.
Thanks for your submission anyway.
