Yes in /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf.cnf you have by default :

% This texmf.cnf file should contain only your personal changes from the
% main texmf.cnf.
% Do NOT change values in the main file (which is in
% .../texlive/YYYY/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf), as YOUR CHANGES WILL BE LOST
% by later updates.
% If you need to make changes to texmf.cnf, put your custom settings in
% this file instead, which is YYYY/texmf.cnf.  And insert *only* your
% changed values.
TEXMFHOME = ~/Library/texmf

I think it's the file that you can modify

But more simple it's to put your texmf in the library folder

I have a old version of gnuplottex in my texmf and a new one in the system

[ego at mundus:~]
$ kpsewhich gnuplottex.sty
