It works. But if you want to use that style file in more than one directory,
it gets tedious.

If you are using TeXLive, first check if a TeXLive package for what you want
exists. First tell tlmgr(1) to use a CTAN mirror:

    tlmgr option repository http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet

Then list all packages available:

    tlmgr list|less

The packages you have installed are prefixed with an 'i'.

Make a texmf directory in your $HOME. This is searched by default in TeXLiv=
e.
See /usr/local/texlive/<YEAR>/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf

Just unzip pgfCVS2010-09-28_TDS.zip in ~/texmf, and run mktexlsr afterwards.
