It is very easy to configure and install. I followed the readme and
made sure everything was put in /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.local/ with
the configure flag. Then make and make install and that was it.

I just use i-Installer and the usual setup and by installing
everything into one of these places it just works. Of course, one has
to have the right permissions when installing into texmf.local but
that's no surprise.
