I just tried to place ssv2latex in ~/Library/texmf/ , changed the  
line in the applescript and it worked. So I am happy.

Here, though, is something I would like to elucidate:

Given that I don't know how to access  /usr/local/texmf-local/  (I  
really should carve it in stone somewhere accessible and whose  
location I can remember and access), to what extent can I use ~/ 
Library/texmf/ instead?

Hopeful regards
