As local admin you own texmf.local (well, not quite, I use it as well for
package parts that I want to survive a tetex/gwtex update)

Here is a procedure that could help

In a terminal window
    (cd /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local; find . | sort >/tmp/local.list)
    (cd /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex; find . >/tmp/gwtex.list.uns)
    (cd /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex; find . >>/tmp/gwtex.list.uns)
    sort < /tmp/gwtex.list.uns >/tmp/gwtex.list
    opendiff /tmp/local.list /tmp/gwtex.list

and look for places where both sides are identical.
