Installed here and seems to work OK. The install process wasn't  
completely trivious, I hope I got it right:

- Download the 4 zip files:


to the Desktop and unzip them.

- Move the 3 subdirectories base, doc and unpacked from the latex2e  
directory to /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.local/tex/latex/, then run:

	sudo mktexlsr

- Recreate all the formats:

	sudo -H fmtutil-sys --all

- In the 3 remaining directories tools, graphics and cyrillic, run  
LaTeX on the respective .ins files, then move the directories to / 
Library/teTeX/share/texmf.local/tex/latex/ and run again:

	sudo mktexlsr

I tested that on two recent LaTeX files of mine, one of which uses a  
handful of packages:


plus 200 or 300 lines of redefinitions of the LaTeX and package  
internals (esp. regarding the hyperref package). Both files compiled OK.
