Everything looks fine at this end. Can you tell me what

kpsewhich article.cls


I'm a bit worried that something is wrong with your TeX distribution. Can you also let me know what

ls -alfe@ /usr/local


ls -alfe@ /usr/local/texlive


ls -alfe@ /usr/local/texlive/2011


Sorry this is taking so long but this is really puzzling.

In the end it may be best to simply re-install MacTeX-2011.

Good Luck,
