Are you TeXing or LaTeXing? I put stuff in temmf/tex/latex, and LaTeX  
finds them. Maybe that's the problem? Or maybe it doesn't matter, I'm  
not sure.

Also, I would recommend putting it under ~/Library rather than / 
Library. (Put it in your personal library folder rather than the  
system library folder.)
