Did you run

sudo mktexlsr

after putting texmf-local back?

What is going on that you keep on having to re-install your system?

You really need to get an external HD and use it to make a bootable  
clone of your internal HD using something like SuperDuper! (wonderful  
program). Once you have a bootable clone (which you update every once  
in a while --- while the initial copy takes quite a while the update  
doesn't take very long) you can boot from it (hold the Opt key when  
you boot until you see a list of bootable HDs), format the internal HD  
and the run SuperDuper! back the other way.

Good Luck,
