I think that the only stuff in there which is not standard is my own private macros inside a latex subfolder.  Is there a way to clear out the duplicate copies of things like pstricks packages leaving only those installed by MacTex 2010?  Or do I need to do it folder by folder? 

The TeX Live Utility  only updates /usr/local/texlive/2010/texmf-dist, AKA TEXMFDIST. It does not touch your items in your TEXMFHOME folder, ~/Library/texmf, or in TEXMFLOCAL. Any file in one of the latter two trees takes precedence over those in TEXMFDIST. In a Terminal window, run

kpsewhich pst3d-solides.tex

to find which version is seen by TeX, and delete it if it is not in TEXMFDIST.
