[texhax] texmf / package installation specifics on mac OSX

(1) i have a package (xymtex, actually) it has lots of .sty, .dtx, etc. 

(2) on a Mac OSX 'iInstaller' latex installation, i found 
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/tex/latex/ has a lot of latex things i 
use all the time, so i figure its the 'right' place.  -> i am uncertain 
about the significance of the other texmf directories.  the linux install 
has only one texmf.

now i'd like to check that this is *close* to right, before doing it - any 
comments appreciated :

(3) drop xymtex/ into /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/tex/latex/
(4) `texhash` (as admin) to update all ls-R

`texconfig` is not necessary for installation of one package, right?
