It works for me (in Canada) on a 10.5.8 Apple imac (but our network is working
today -- at times this download would take a day):

$ tlmgr --repository
install oberdiek
tlmgr: package repository
[1/1, ??:??/??:??] install: oberdiek [20748k]
tlmgr: package log updated at /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf-var/web2c/tlmgr.log
running mktexlsr ...
done running mktexlsr.
