(1)	Downloaded and installed MacTeX-2011 which is selected in the TeX  
Distribution preference panel

(2)	Ran TeX Live Utility which eventually said something about  
structures done.

(2)	Tried to compile a file and, sure enouth, got the openout thing:

> I can't write on file `../Text-contents/2.aux'.
> \@include ...\immediate \openout \@partaux #1.aux

An hour later, got that fixed.

(3)	Entered

\usepackage{hyperref}%[pdfborder={0 0 0}]

in the preamble

(4)	Tried to compile a file with \url{http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arithmetic 
} in the text but got

LaTeX Warning: You have requested, on input line 250, version
                `2009/07/21' of package kvoptions,
                but only version
                `2007/10/18 v3.0 Keyval support for LaTeX options (HO)'
                is available.

3896: Undefi
ned control sequence.
l.3896 \DeclareLocalOptions

(5)	Ran TeX Live Utility which says

keyval2e		Not installed		23698			310.1KB

Well, I tried.

Still hopeful regards

P.S. I don't mind the Mr. but I really can do without it :-))
