Here is another try:

macbook-daniel:~ daniel$ sudo /usr/texbin/tlmgr --location ftp://ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008/ 
  install −−reinstall --machine-readable  ESIEEcv
Password:
tlmgr: --machine-readable output not supported for install
location-url	ftp://ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008/
tlmgr: installation location ftp://ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008/
install: −−reinstall
/usr/texbin/tlmgr: Cannot find package −−reinstall
tlmgr: package log updated at /usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf-var/web2c/ 
tlmgr.log
macbook-daniel:~ daniel$

I dont know if you can see it in an email, but the two minus-signs  
before −−reinstall --machine-readable look different.

when I copy from the TeX Live Utility Log-Window, I get 1) but it  
should be 2)
1) /usr/texbin/tlmgr --location ftp://ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008/ 
  install −−reinstall ESIEEcv
2) /usr/texbin/tlmgr --location ftp://ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008/ 
  install --reinstall ESIEEcv

running 2) seems to do what it should:

macbook-daniel:~ daniel$ sudo /usr/texbin/tlmgr --location ftp://ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008/ 
  install --reinstall --machine-readable  ESIEEcv
tlmgr: --machine-readable output not supported for install
location-url	ftp://ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008/
tlmgr: installation location ftp://ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008/
reinstall: ESIEEcv
tlmgr: package log updated at /usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf-var/web2c/ 
tlmgr.log
running mktexlsr
