The stock config.guess/sub from the net should work fine it contains 
everything for Mac OS X.

darwin 5.3 binaries are the same as darwin 5.4 binaries, they just were 
produced with the same compiler setup on a different os version.

If people install from the CD in /usr/local/teTeX they will be able to 
use i-Installer to update the program side of TeX (not the texmf side)

Not needed and maybe they already are.
