Thanks for the reply. However, before I tried the mactex installation, I also tried the unix version, which MacTeX is based on. With that one, the texmf-local is also changed in the same way. In addition, the installation will try /usr/local/texlive/2011 by default. So this is perhaps not a bug introduced by MacTeX. But that script was uploaded on 11 May and I think that is outdated. I am sure everything will work out fine and many thanks for the hard work.
