It's "sudo texhash", not "sudo rehash".
This instruction must be used after modifying the content of /usr/
local/teTeX. All TeX-related binaries search files:
(1) First inside ~/Library/texmf/ directly,
(2) Afterwards inside /usr/local/teTeX/share/, but not by searching
the directories directly: instead, for speeding up the process, a
database /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/ls-R is used. "sudo
texhash" is the instruction for updating this database.
That's why, if you add something inside ~/Library/texmf it's taken
into account immediately, while if you add something inside /usr/
local/teTeX/ you have to run "sudo texhash" before the addition is
taken into account.
