Ah, I missed that one.
I personally use linux, but I've installed TeXLive on a few Mac OS X
systems in both the Mac way and the *nix way (I didn't want to install
MacTeX because it seemed limited compared to the full TeXLive
distribution.) I recall many permission problems with both installs. I
remember that when installed you're asked for a password. Maybe if the
root password is given there's a problem. This
"Warning about Unix permissions: Your umask at the time of installation
will be respected by the TEX Live installer. Therefore, if you want your
installation to be usable by users other than you, make sure your
setting is sufficiently permissive, for instance, umask 002. For more
information about umask, consult your system documentation."
As you say, the MaCTeX website may help.
