[OS X TeX] how to place user-specific texmf.cnf on Mac OS X

hi, all!

I want to change the value of the variable of OSFONTDIR in texmf.cnf as follows

$ cat texmf.cnf

But we know the fact that non-privilige user shouldn't edit system-specific configuration since system update will overwite these modifications. Moreover, I want to make a user-specific configuration on texmf.cnf instead of TEXMFLOCAL.  So I try the following directories to place user-specific texmf.cnf:

1. ~/Library/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf

they all result that OSFONTDIR is null, i.e. 

$ kpsewhich --var-value=OSFONTDIR 

And I also follow the line of section 2.4.3 in 
However, it fails yet.

What can I?

Best regards,
