There's a new version at the addresses above.  The main changes are:
 - It puts things in /Library/Tor, not /usr/local/ .
 - It doesn't force a click-through of the Tor license, since neither
   Tor's license (nor Privoxy's) imposes restrictions on end-users; only
   on distributors.

If you have been running a server using the old packages, and keeping
tor data in /usr/local/var/lib/tor, you should move that directory to
/Library/Tor/var/lib/tor .

If there are no major bugs in this version, I will use this setup for
the official binaries for, including any improved
documentation people send me.
