I did, and I couldn't find a plain and unambiguous statement oriented towards Mac OS X users.

FWIW, I broke down and put the line:


in my file and my need for config.asy went away.

I'm also using a very simple Asymptote.engine file:


set path= ($path /usr/texbin /usr/local/bin)
set filename = "$1"

asy -v "$filename"

which of course directly makes a .eps or .pdf of a .asy file
