tlmgr is new with TeX Live 2008.  Mac TeX is also TeX Live 2007, but
will eventually use 2008.

Unless you really need backwards compatibility, you should
consider install the 2008 version and helping with testing.
I've been using it and have only very minor problems (the
tlmgr gui doesn't work -- perhaps due to a bug in perl::Tk from
macports, or the X11 port on Leopard (which I just
updated in an attempt to solve some other X11 issues).
