As Norbert says, MacTeX and TL already include revtex. Unless you did
something tricky to omit installing some packages, they should be
I speculate that you may need to change your \documentclass. APS's
current package includes revtex4.cls and revtex4-1.cls (for revtex 4.1),
but not revtex.cls. They made that decision because the new classes
have some small incompatibilities with the older ones.
If you need a different version from APS, then you will indeed need to
install it in your own directory and run mktexlsr. The standard place
on the Mac would be under ~/Library/texmf.
Hope this helps,
