Textlive refuses to be build.

In order to install ffmpeg, I am required to install Texlive. After reading carefully the slackbuild description and installed libsigsegv I run the slackbuild for arriving only at the very disappointing result as following:

make[3]: Leaving directory `/tmp/SBo/texlive-20120701-source/build/utils/vlna'

Where is the problem? What (tf) is Latex, elatex and lambda? Those dependencies were not even mentioned by the Slackbuild until now... They are not even Slackbuilds nor official packages.

In order to build TexLive you need teTex packages.
teTex is part of the slackware.

You don't need texlive at all. Tetex is included in Slackware.

The standard advice to anybody new to Slackware is to do a full install. Had you done so, you would have installed the 't' series, which includes teTeX. It is expected that this is installed, as it can be required for building documentation. It is also a reason why packages should be built as the root user after doing 'su -', so that the path includes the location of the teTeX binaries.
