If you get BasicTeX from


or by following the link at


then you will get an updated BasicTeX will tlmgr already updated (and  
remaining packages updated to the latest versions). The version of  
BasicTeX on CTAN will be upgraded in a couple of hours, but may take a  
few days to reach the CTAN servers. I'll update MacTeX-2008 in the  
same way in the next couple of days.
