[OS X TeX] Hyphenation

Hi all --

In the Dutch language macro dutch.dtx, we can use  "-  to hyphenate a 
word while still enabling the rest of the word to be hyphenated, so 
that common Dutch words like diphosphate-phosphohydrolase do not result 
in underfull boxes.

I would like to use this as standard behaviour, so that every  -  in my 
text will be understood as  "- and has full hyphenation. I'm sure it's 
just a \renewcommand somewhere, but I don't know how to do this.

Any help out there?
