No, best to make a copy of the supplied "Use texmf tree" config file,
put the copy in your own config folder, make the necessary changes,
then add something like this near the top of your Local file (so all
Oz* apps read it):

load_config = ":myconfigs:Use texmf tree"

No need to put it in LocalX because you might want to access the texmf
files while running on OS 8/9.

But please read the notes in the supplied config file and then let me
know if anything is unclear.
