I'm back at it, trying to learn to create the kinds of documents I need with LyX. A couple weeks ago I upgraded to the 2011 distribution. Inquiring as to whether I should get rid of the earlier version and if so how, I was referred to the MacTex page on uninstalling.

texmf-local should be at /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local —  in other words, at the same level as the 2011 and 2010 (and 2009 etc) distributions.
