Well, you mentioned you can't sudo. So mpm has to go into a different  
place than /usr/local, which is owned by the superuser. To achieve  
this you have to re-configure correctly. If you already have mpm  
installed, then it's probably OK to use this installation as

	mpm --install-root=${HOME}/Library/texmf ...

without sudo, because it's all written into your home area. I  
corrected myself in this sentence because I finally assumed that you  
did not have mpm installed and wanted to mention this topic, too.
