No problem.  Every search path in the config file starts with


so just replace that prefix with the correct path for your teTeX.
Even users of Gerben's installer will have to replace "OSX" with the
name of their OS X start-up volume.

NB. When I drop support for OS 8/9 (probably in 5.1) I will allow
Unix paths in OzTeX config files so you can do things like

input_folders = |
   ~/Library/texmf/tex/** |
   /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/tex/** |
