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

Make a texmf directory in your $HOME. This is searched by default in TeXLive.
Just unzip pgfCVS2010-09-28_TDS.zip in ~/texmf, and run mktexlsr afterwards.
