What OS version / arch are you running on? I'll re-test the PBI creator
here and get it fixed when you let me know. Odds are its missing a
specific QT lib which is dynamically loaded.

Also, if you have an updated port for the textex live app, we can throw
that into our specific ports tree while we wait on FreeBSD ports to get
it updated :)
