Nothing against texlive, but I think you might have better luck if 
you just grabbed Gerben Wierda's tetex distribution and Richard 
Koch's TeXshop to get started. Should be linked to from www.tug.org 
or findable w/ Google.

Although Mac OS X is freebsd, it's a rather tweaked setup, on a 
case-insensitive filesystem, and using Unix software frequently 
involves some further tweaking. Check the Fink and other projects for 
packaging Unix software for Mac OS X for details.
