[tex-live] TeX Live on NetBSD: first steps

I'm trying install TeX Live on a NetBSD system because I want to use
LaTeX. Building the [1]sources using the `Build' script worked (almost)
out of the box, so now I have a TeX Live installation in `inst/'.

What steps do I have to take next? Except for moving the `inst/'
contents to the desired destination... E.g. I tried to run latex and

$ PATH=/usr/local/src/texlive/inst/bin/i386-unknown-netbsdelf4.99.20:$PATH
$ MANPATH=/usr/local/src/texlive/inst/man:$MANPATH
$ tex --version
TeX 3.141592 (Web2C 7.5.6)
kpathsea version 3.5.6
$ latex sample2e.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.141592-1.40.3 (Web2C 7.5.6)
kpathsea: Running mktexfmt latex.fmt
I can't find the format file `latex.fmt'!

Hmm, any hints? Is there some documentation about what has to be done
after building TeX Live from source?

Help is appreciated!

TIA, Jukka
