I can confidently say that Migration Assistant does NOT copy one's  
TeX installation. I have used it several times either to set up new  
macs or in major OS upgrades (Panther->Tiger). That has nothing to do  
with each user's library and documents (TeX or otherwise), which are,  
of course, copied.
