The package is present on my systems, both 10.3.9 and 10.4.5.

Fink is not what you want.

I don't think there is a latex distribution included with Mac OS X.   
If it is on your system, you must have added it.  In any case, yes,  
you can just add this to the TeX tree on your system.  On my systems,  
this is in the directory /usr/local/teTeX.  Here is what I find on my  
system (using 'locate'):


After installing, use the command 'texhash' (run it as root, e.g.,  
with 'sudo').
