Snow Leopard seems to have made a change to the way the locate  
database is generated. For example, the indispensible Locator program  
(version 0.73) is no longer able to generate or regenerate the  
database from within the program. The only way I've found to do it is

cd /usr/libexec
sudo ./locate.updatedb

Leopard used to allow simply

sudo /usr/libexec/locator.updatedb
