If you mean your own personal packages (.sty) files the best thing to do is
install them into ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/ and La/TeX will automagically
find them. Note that the ~ means your HOME directory and the texmf/tex/latex
sub-directories (folders) inside your HOME Library may have to be made
(i.e., new folders).

Good Luck,
