This is a bug, and now I see why, thanks for that!!!!

cd /usr/local/texlive/2009/bin/i386-freebsd
ln -s ../../texmf/scripts/texlive/tlmgr.pl tlmgr

Karl: We have to push tlcritical to tlnet NOW!!! The problem is
that since the last push you added *-freebsd that made it
installable, but 
is NOT in tlnet for now!!!

The push will bring also the new GUI to everyone. if you want
you can undo the GUI commit (there were two) and then push, and
then I reapply the change.

Or we just push the new GUI, too, since the old is still available.

(The last from me for 2 days, leaving for skitouring)
