[Slackbuilds-users] texlive build peculiarity

I was trying to build office/texlive. I have the Slackware tetex*
packages installed as suggested by the Slackbuild's README.
After a while, I get this [1] error -- while building xindy --, stating
that I'm missing LATEX, and it is required to build the TeXLive utility
After I removed --enable-xindy from the SlackBuild, built texlive,
removed tetex*, installed texlive (without xindy), I could rebuild
texlive with --enable-xindy, and could install it fine.
Only libsigsegv package is noted as a requirement for texlive, am I
missing something, or does this resemble a catch 22?
