Yes, I rebuild them whenever a new version comes out, so about twice
My own experience is: it's perfectly smooth, and if there were
problems, they weren't specific to the Mac. If you want the formats
to be copied into the system-wide tree (that's /usr/local/teTeX/texmf/
texmf.local/web2c) instead of your personal ~/Library/texmf/ and are
using the new texmfstart method, you should invoke the script from a
texmfstart texexec --make --all
Other than that, I can't think of anything special.
