Yes, I suggest Sebastian to add these lines in texlive config.guess (as in
20020515 release) and he do it. It works at my home...

Everything is OK (from an install point of view...), I hope, except that
installation requires Terminal (but MacOSX is UNIX, is it ?).

The remaining problem is that the most recent "net" config.guess (which is
*not* the texlive one) is able to handle macOSX, *provided* install-cd and
install-pkg were modified (and strongly tested).
What I suggest is that we don't try to use this standard "net" config.guess
