/usr/texbin is a symlink:
/usr/texbin@ -> /usr/local/texlive/Master/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin8.8.0
for the rebuild binaries of the texlive source, it's working pretty
and with 1.93 GB it's approximately double the size of
/usr/texbin@ -> /usr/local/texlive/2005/bin/powerpc-darwin.

I decided to rebuild /usr/local and instead of a directory I made a
/usr/local@ -> /Users/tosek/local
mainly to avoid the constant use of sudo.
Normally configure-make-install works, but sometimes it still needs
and using su to change to admin is inefficient (still needs another
sudo + password).
So I added myself to the sudoers list.
i-installer doesn't need a password anymore.
Spotlight needs no force to index your stuff in /usr/local.
Now I prefer /usr/local/texbin instead of /usr/texbin as it makes
switching between different TeX-Installation faster and no fiddling
with passwords, just an Applescript.

Isn't /usr/local moved in case of "Archive & Install?
I'm not sure of this...
Having local in my home directory makes backup easier.
/usr/local@ -> /Users/Shared/local
would be another possibility.
Ok, this was a bit OT.
With htlatex I still have to figure out how to avoid getting every
footnote as single html-file, but with texlive and the source it
