Remember that MacTeX-2009 is still at the pretest stage! You can get  
updates via the latest TeX Live Utility (0.73 or later) from one of  
the servers listed at <http://www.tug.org/texlive/mirmon/>. Click on  
one of the http or ftp servers and use the URL it goes to enter in the  
TLU preferences. E.g. clicking on `texlive.guiling.fr' (the http  
server in France) takes you to <http://texlive.guiling.fr/> which you  
enter as the Server URL in TLU Preferences.

Good Luck,
