[OS X TeX] Best place to put updated Babel?

The MacTeX package is constructed by renaming /usr/local on the  
machine, and then creating a new /usr/local by asking i-Installer to  

	TeX, installed with options Full, x86/ppc
	Freetype 2, GNU gettext libraries, FontForge, and Fondu Mac Font cli  
	CB Greek
	ConTeXT updater
	LaTeX updater
	Ghostscript 8
	Libwmf, PNG Library
	RTF 2 LaTeX2e and Latex to RTF Converter

Then Apple's PackageMaker converts the new /usr/local (and the GUI  
applications and package receipts)
into an install Package. So everything Gerben's system installs with  
these packages
will be in MacTeX.

I released a new MacTeX.pkg yesterday; the previous one didn't  
contain the two Latex to and
from RTF converters. The new package contains i-Installer 2.82, not  
yet the i-Installer 2.83 released
