If you decide to put files inside /Library/teTeX/, then they should  
go inside the appropriate subfolders of /Library/teTeX/share/ 
texmf.local/. And afterwards you should open Terminal and type in:

	sudo mktexlsr

You'll be asked for an administrator password.

Files can be put either inside ~/Library/texmf/ or /Library/teTeX/ 
share/texmf.local/ (but never inside /Library/texmf/, which isn't  
searched). There are several differences:

- ~/Library/texmf/ is searched first by the TeX executables, but is  
only visible to your account, not to the other possible account  
owners on your Mac. Any file put there will be seen.

- /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.local/ is searched afterwards, and is  
visible to all account owners on your Mac. However, when a file is  
put there, you need to run "sudo mktexlsr" once (or "sudo texhash",  
which is a symbolic link to it) before the TeX executables become  
aware of it.

Sources of information on that:

- /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/README.texmf.gwtex

- /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/README.howtexfindsfiles

Hope this helps,
