So you can rename your local directory /Users/zbigniewnitecki/Library/texmf/bibtex to, for example, /Users/zbigniewnitecki/Library/texmf/bibtex-orig and create a symbolic or sym-link /Users/zbigniewnitecki/Library/texmf/bibtex instead which points to the where the Dropbox volume is mounted to your file system. For example:
