Did you try my idea of just copying your customized setup (adapted to  
the TDS) into /Users/Shared/texmf and then making a link to that using

ln -s /Users/Shared/texmf/ ~/Library/texmf


You lose the option of further customizing for each user, but it'll  
allow you to accept all the i-Installer defaults (or mactex's) and  
``just work'' and it's a bit more Mac-like (modulo the need to use  
the command line once for each user).
