I have also seen this - on exactly same OS X system version
- and tracked it down - it is a bug in chk_file_sec
which  does not properly handle the /var -> private/var root
symbolic link - if you decide to load
the variable config files and spool files for PBS in /var/spool
 - specifically in my case /var/spool/PBS  (at least thats I was doing)
