Yes. Moving directories in Tiger (and maybe Panther) to such  
protected locations may be done in the Finder by drag-and-drop:  
you'll get an authentication dialog, asking for an administrator name  
and password.

However, you cannot create directories the same way, I think: you'll  
have to use the Terminal and "sudo mkdir".

Personally, after doing such additions, I run in i-Installer the  
Configure stage in Expert mode, selecting only the "TeX Owner  
Selection" step, to make sure that all the stuff in texmf.local has a  
consistent set of permissions. (Actually it only sets ownership, not  
permissions AFAIK, but that's a start.)

Gerben gave once a list of all the files that were created in ~/ 
Library/texmf by per-user configs. I just copied it this morning  
(Paris time) in a message "Rép : [OS X TeX] Font issues [was: dvips  
problem] - resolved". Here it is:

And "sudo texhash" before that (or "sudo mktexlsr", which is exactly  
the same).
