The texmf.pkgs directory is meant for local additions; both via extra  
i-packages (e.g., CM-Super) and your additions to the system. It is  
texmf.pkgs that is preserved when there is a gwTeX update.

The texmf.local directory is where generated format files, etc., are  
placed during the configuration phase of gwtex installation.

Good Luck,
