Hi,  I can use the locate command in a Terminal to quickly find files  
in /usr/local/texlive.  However, it doesn't find files in ~/Library/ 
texmf.  How do I make it do that?

Secondly, what's the relationship between the Spotlight search (via  
Command-space) and the locate search database?  They clearly don't  
find the same things, since /usr/local files never show up in the  
Command-Space searches.  Is there a way to make them match?
