With one small change: on most linux systems the user texmf tree is in 
~/texmf, while with Gerben's redistribution it is in ~/Library/texmf

Note that for the various tex programs and related utilities to 
actually find the files, you'll need to mimic the structure that is 
fond in the main texmf trees. Since you seem to be using a plain 
(pdf)tex syntax, the private, reusable files need to be stored in 
~/Library/texmf/tex/plain/ or one if its subdirectories. A more 
detailed description can be found in
