Let me echo Herb's report. On my more or less vanilla machine, PATH returns


The only reference to TeX is /usr/texbin, and that has been the case with MacTeX
for several years.

I added a file to /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex, ran mktexlsr, tried
kpsewhich thefile.sty, and the file was found. 

Your "opt" gives rise to the possibility that you have a MacPorts version of
TeX which is seen first. Our usual suggestion in that case is to make
sure /usr/texbin come first in your PATH.
