The latter place requires 'sudo -H texhash' to be useful for all
users, in the first case only *you* have access to the file(s).

It depends on the search path for this component. In most cases the
files in the texmf.local tree would be found first, before
texmf.gwtex. The complete search path for (La)TeX components begins
with . (the current working directory), then the remainder of your
own files is searched, then follows the system.

If all else fails read the instructions. - Donald Knuth
