Texlive-2015. Looking at what I've done in the past in texlive, I'm sure there are probably still errors - if anybody has the time, disk space, inclination, and perhaps their own tex file(s), to review the from source instructions I would appreciate it. My own (lastex, minimal context) test files are in my directory on higgs.
