I'm not sure if this is the reason, but do make sure that your /etc/ 
w3c/validator.conf has the line:
Base = /Library/WebServer/Documents/validator

** without a # at the beginning **

Apparently the Base directory is not set and the validator is using  
the default.

 or, indeed, as Chuck suggested, you could you the standalone mac app  
he built, unless you need the web service capabilities of the  
validator (e.g to build an app upon it).
