I think you should create a new texmf.cnf file that contains only the item you wish to override and place that in /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/web2c. That way even if you update to TL2011 (that supports Leopard!) it will still work. Need only run
after placing the new txmf.cnf in that location so that TeX ``knows'' about it's existence.
