The order of search is ~/Library/texmf (personal tree), /usr/local/
teTeX/share/texmf.local (local changes), ...; so changes in the
personal tree take precedent over the texmf.local, etc.
You might want to take a look at /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.gwtex/
README.howtexfindsfiles (/usr/local/teTeX can be gotten to via /
Library/teTeX, a symbolic link).
