Using LaTeX on FreeBSD

I've been using FreeBSD 10.1 on my laptop and had to relearn how to do some basic things in LaTeX. First of all, tetex is no longer a distribution that is used; look for "texlive" when installing. Secondly, I could not remember how to add local packages to my hash. After dusting many cobwebs, it appears to be the following:
  1. mkdir -p ~/texmf/tex/latex
  2. cp whatever.cls ~/texmf/tex/latex
  3. texhash
