[tex-live] Adding texdoc only adds link

    Actually not, since he used TLU which is tlmgr to install texdoc,
    so he should have gotten the full normal package.

Axel said he started by installed basictex.  I don't remember exactly
how Koch set it up, but as I recall, it is not simply a TL installation
with certain collections.  I seem to remember talking about making a
scheme-basictex but it hasn't happened.

Then there is the question of TLU <-> basictex interactions.  We are
several steps away from a normal tlmgr invocation.

Anyway, Axel, if you run "tlmgr install texdoc" perhaps there will be
something useful in the output.  But I suspect it will be hard to trace
back or reproduce since this is not a usual setup.  Hence my suggestion
of starting on the MacTeX side.
