Looks like a permission problem. Did you try using Repair Permission  
in Disk Utility (booting from either your hard drive or the OS X  
install CD or DVD)?

It may also result from the havoc in recent versions of TeXLive  
caused by the change from updmap to updmap-sys etc. Do you have  
generated files (ie that you didn't install yourself) in ~/Library/ 
texmf (like texmf.cnf, updmap.cfg, etc.)? If that's the case, then  
you should delete all these generated files, then re-run the  
Configure stage of the TeX i-Package in Expert mode. It should fix  
things up for you.
