“Sphinx, MacTeX and Macports”

If you want to use Sphinx to build PDF documentation using MacTeX built from Macports, you will need to install the following ports (note that this may not be a minimal list, but it is a functional list):

  • texlive-latex
  • texlive-latex-recommended
  • texlive-fonts-recommended
  • texlive-fonts-extra
  • texlive-latex-extra

I’m not sure if the -extra packages are needed, but they don’t take up much space so I went ahead and installed them.
