I see that Aquamacs has the elc and el.gz files in /Applications/Aquamacs.app/Contents/Resources/list/org.  When I downloaded the latest version of org-mode, it has a lisp directory with all the .el files and a doc directory with pdf and tex files.

While it technically works for most packages, I wouldn't recommend changing files inside the .app bundle, as you'll lose your changes when upgrading Aquamacs.

The Aquamacs manual and the Wiki list paths in the ~/Library hierarchy that are meant to take your own packages.

Out of interest - is the latest org-mode much better than what's included?
