Not symlinks, but they wouldn’t be on Dropbox, if the actual files are kept there and symlinked to the Mac, which is what I think Zbigniew wants to do. So, if it is

	ln -s ~/Dropbox/Library/texmf/tex/latex   ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex

this would work. Unless, of course, there are symlinks within the tree itself. In that case I don’t know.
