[texhax] Install old version of TeX

Indeed - had I understood better the capabilities of TeX when I began the
project I might have gone about it differently! As it is, the whole set up
is very hacked together and relies on many different packages as they were
at the point I first installed them. I'm nearing the end of the work now so
will be quicker to just carry on rather than try and tidy up my code.

Dear Francis,
Phil already explained how to install an ancient Version of TeX Live.

In my opinion it's much better to use the latest TeX Live release and
contact the author(s) of the package which doesn't work for you as it did in
the past.
