I submitted my port of memoir yesterday to OpenBSD ports. Working on that port I realised that the LaTeX ports use $LOCALBASE/share/texmf and $LOCALBASE/share/texmf-local inconsistently. Since Marc Espie's lgrind port use texmf and I think texmf-local should be reserved for site specific packages, I choose texmf for my port and asked whether the other ports should not be changed to use the same policy. Just to make things consistent. So far no comments, but since the tree has just recently been unlocked there's commit frenzy of new ports and updates to old, so the committers are rather overloaded at the moment.
