Install the .sty file in ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/ or any sub- 
directory (for organizational purposes) of that directory. If any of  
the directories mentioned don't exist simply create them as you go.  
This is for personal use (i.e., other users of your system won't  
``see'' these files.

Good Luck,
