comment Custom .sty directory with OSX 10.5 and pdfTeXk
@Alan Munn: Understood. I'll inquire about the path, but I'm probably just going to tell them to install MacTeX. It seems silly it can't search elsewhere, but that's a moot point.

@Alan Munn: Is pdflatex based on TeXLive ?

@Alan Munn: Is pdfTeXk == MacTeX ? I don't have a Mac and can't find much info on pdfTeXk.

I'll suggest this to the user if I am unable to get it to work with the directory structure I've described and path / commandline flag modifications. As noted in the OP, I'd rather not install additional applications or mess with the current setup if possible.

I tried exporting $TEXMFHOME to point to the style/ directory (using the absolute path) as you described, but pdflatex still doesn't find the .sty files in style/. Regarding the graphics, the paths are already set properly. It may be worth noting that I'm building from inside the src directory (cd src; pdflatex document.tex) and figs / cls references are properly relative, but .sty are not because in Windows they've always been on my path.
