Place profile.do in "~/Library/Application Support/Stata" --that is your own /Library directory, rather than the machine's /Library directory. On my OS X machine (running Stata 10, but this has not changed) I get

[5] (PERSONAL) "~/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado/personal/"
[6] (PLUS) "~/Library/Application Support/Stata/ado/plus/"

and those are the appropriate directories (even if you are the only user on the machine).

I can change the paths for PLUS and PERSONAL using:
sysdir set PLUS "/Applications/Stata/ado/plus/" and
sysdir set PERSONAL "/Applications/Stata/ado/personal/", but when I
restart Stata, these directories revert to that above.  How do I make
my directory change permanent?

In a related question, I thought I could create a do file which would
run automatically when I start Stata.  I saved it in "/Library/
Application Support/Stata", but this does not seem to work either.
