While I'm not able to directly help --- this did spark a question  
I've been pondering for a while now --- why not add an additional  
texmf tree for all users of a given Mac as a standard part of the  

I'd think that /Users/Shared/texmf would be a good place for it --- I  
wanted to set up my wife's account on her PowerBook to have a  
customized TeX setup, so duped my own and deleted a couple of things  
she didn't need, but instead, moving the stuff we both need to some  
centralized location strikes me as a much better idea.
