I think Jan's answer is slightly misleading. The message about TEXMF
being an undefined variable is perfectly fine (at least if you use
csh or tcsh as your shell) and just shows that you don't set it as
an environmental variable anywhere else. Normally, the variable is
read from a setup file in teTeX and is not set as an environment
variable, but in LilyPond we exploit the possibility to override
this setting with an environment variable.

Anyway, to help us assist your debugging; what does the following
sequence of commands return?

kpsexpand \$TEXMF

kpsexpand \$TEXPSHEADERS


unsetenv TEXMF # Assuming you use tcsh, otherwise use: unset TEXMF

kpsexpand \$TEXMF

kpsexpand \$TEXPSHEADERS

You should find out what goes wrong here, this is most certainly the
culprit.  Something broke wrt your TeX or lilypond installation.

When you log in, TEXMF should point to your TeX installation (possibly
something like '!!/sw/usr/share/texmf').  The additional lilypond
profile or login script adds the location of the lilypond TeX tree to
this variable.  Both must be present, another Mac users can probably
tell you what the variable must look like.
