Hi There:

I installed texlive on OpenBSD using their ports. texlive_base,
texlive_texmf_full, and texlive_texmf_minimal. I am able to compile a
file, but I get random errors like this

This is XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.2-0.9997.4 (TeX Live 2010-OpenBSD_Ports)
 restricted \write18 enabled.

Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed,

I have not set the PATH yet in .profile file, what should the path be
for OpenBSD port for texlive2010. How woudl I go about correcting this

Thanks a lot for your help.
