Well ... I guess the short answer is I didn't.  I just wanted to use 
\utilde, found it was provided by the package "undertilde" and so put 
\usepackage{undertilde} in my preamble.  (Isn't that what one usually 
does in respect of packages?)

But this produced the error "package undertilde not found" (or words to 
that effect).

There *is* a .sty file in the undertilde package which I downloaded from 
CRAN and managed to install.  After I installed it, there was no longer 
any problem with \usepackage{undertilde}.

So I am kind of bewildered as to what you are driving at.  Can you 
please elaborate?  What *should* I have done to get access to the 
\utilde command (without having to install "undertilde" by hand as it 
were.  And why wasn't undertilde.sty available from the get-go from my 
installation of Texlive 2013?

I need to get on top of this, so I would appreciate some clarification.

P. S. Thanks for your explanation about "locate" in your other email. 
You are quite right --- things run overnight; this morning "locate" 
found the other instances of "undertilde" that I had added to my system.
