The tlmgr is already installed as a Command Line Tool with MaCTeX. The  
extra install is so that you can use tlmgr in its GUI mode for X11. If  
you have OS X 10.5 you already have X11 installed so you can try

sudo tlmgr -gui

to play with the GUI version. You only need the `sudo' if you plan to  
install any updates. Right now there aren't any updates to install.

Good Luck,
