Here's a script to install the unstable distribution in texmfvar. Modify the last line to correspond to the path to your downloaded zip file (omit the .zip). Then copy the script below and paste it into a Terminal window,

mkdir -p ~/Library/texlive/2010/texmf-var
cd ~/Library/texlive/2010/texmf-var
unzip ~/Downloads/pgfplots_unstable.tds
