You're on OSX Lion right? Click on finder in your dock, hit "go" in the top bar, hit "go to folder...", Type in

~/Library/Application Support/

Naviagate to minecraft folder and your set!

And as a tip, you can drag the minecraft folder to the left side of a finder window to bookmark it, saves time if your big on mods :)

Doesn't the built in texture pack function in the client work? That's probably the easist way to do it.

I really don't get what your problem is. Never the less, the Mac Support 101 is a good start to troubleshoot Minecraft on Mac.

I am not currently running on a Mac at the moment, but I will walk you folks through as best as I can. I remember that there was a function that sets certain folders invisible and is only visible after toggling an option. Go to the folder that .minecraft was supposed to be in (something like Application Data, I believe) and click one the menu options at the very top (where the Apple logo is, etc.) to pull down a list of items to choose. While having a list open, hold either Ctrl, Alt, or the Command button on your keyboard and watch to see if an extra item pulls up on the list. If so, it should be called something like Hide Folders or something (I have no clue what it's called), and try clicking it. If the .minecraft folder shows up, you're in luck!

I am fairly positive that this should fix the problem; good luck!

OK
I had the same problem, and i think I've figured it out!
cheers mjbmitch for the hint.

open Finder
click on Go in the menu bar
hold down the 'alt' key whilst the Go drop down menu is down,
A new option to click on should appear half way down called 'Library'
click on Library, then click on Application support,
There you should (if I'm not mistaken) find a mine craft folder.

Hope this works for you too,
spk

I'm having this exact same problem for my macbook pro os x lion, but when i put in /library/Application Support i don't have a .minecraft folder there.  In fact I can't find any minecraft folders at all!  If someone could please tell me house to get my .minecraft into application support that would be awesome.
