If the files are in ~/Library/texmf then you are the only user in the
system that can use them, because other users have no access to the files
in your home directory (by default). So it doesn't make sense to have
references to these files somewhere in /usr/local. Therefore I think the
proper place to have these references is in ~/Library/texmf
