The README is not very specific, but there are two logical places to
put the glossary.sty (and other glossary.*) file(s). The first being in
~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/glossary/ directory (~ means your home
directory, you probably need to create the glossary directory). The
other would be in the
/usr/local/teTex/share/texmf.local/tex/latex/glossary/ directory. (In
both cases putting it in a separate glossary directory is not really
necessary). If you do the second of these you would have to type

sudo texhash

from a terminal in Terminal.app (not needed in the first case). If
that's what you did, and it still doesn't work, then more work will be
needed to figure out what's wrong.
