RevTeX is shipped in TeX Live, thus also MacTeX, why do you need
to install your own version?

Well, you have to put all the files into the right folders, and then
depending on where you put them, run mktexlsr.

One of those push tapes installed in public washrooms enabling the
user to wash their trousers without actually getting into the
basin. The most powerful esher of recent years was 'damped down' by
Red Adair after an incredible sixty-eight days' fight in Manchester's
Piccadilly Station.
