[OS X TeX] Using Babel with I-Installer tex installation

A follow-up: following suggestions by Bruno and Piet, I deleted any and 
all babel-related files in my ~/Library/texmf tree and reran texhash. 
This allowed me to compile the document.

I had placed the babel files under my ~/ tree because I had assumed 
that they would work like other latex style files, in the sense that 
they can be located in either /usr/local/teTeX/ or in ~/Library/texmf, 
but apparently this was an incorrect assumption.

Thanks to all for their help,

Fred Hoyt
