What do you mean by ``there are links everywhere?

There are some packages that are in TDS folders and zipped and will  
unpack properly but where do you intend to unpack them. I'd suggest in  
your personal tree that starts at ~/Library/texmf/ (~ is your HOME  
directory and create folders as you go if they aren't there already.

Good Luck,
