[tex-live] Minimal TeX system?

Hi all,

I would like to install a minimal TeX system on my computer, an intel
mac running OS X. What I had in mind was something to process plain
.tex files, and something to turn the resultant DVIs into PDFs. Also,
I suppose I might like to have to have some nice fonts like Computer
Modern, etc.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? It seems very hard to get
a working TeX without all the LaTeX stuff and a bunch of utilities.

Best Wishes,
