Update the locate DB on OS X

Turns out OS X does not have an updatedb command like linux has, so I was stumped on how to update the locate database.

After a little digging I found the command we needed:

sudo /usr/libexec/locate.updatedb

It is a little paranoid about revealing file names, but it is happy to index everything for you.
