It should work with the following:

$ tlmgr --gui update

You can set up a path for "texmflocal" like:

	bibtex/bst (for additional style files)
	tex/latex/svn-multy/svn-multy.sty (for the svn-multi package)

Have a lock at TDS on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TeX_Directory_Structure 
) and the linked documentation.
