As part of TeX Live 2008 (and therefore MacTeX 2008) there is a CLI  
program called tlmgr which can be used to update the TeX distribution.  
Unfortunately the first version of tlmgr, as supplied in the present  
MacTeX 2008, has some bugs and needs to be updated before using it to  
update the distribution.

Attached is a short document to get you started with tlmgr as supplied  
in MacTeX 2008 and BasicTeX 2008. It gives instructions for setting up  
and updating tlmgr and then gives a bit of information on the simplest  
way to get all available updates to the distribution. There is more  
information on use found in a document that came with MacTeX 2008 in /
