I assume you're talking about the unix install rather than the MacTeX-2021 install. Especially after you mention the TeXDist-2021 install.

I don't know if you are a TUG member but you eventually get a DVD which has the install on it. Still takes longer than MacTeX-2021 directly but you're not on line all that time.

Good Luck,
