Running as a normal user for a LaTeX file that is Ok on 10.3 I get

$ pdflatex anton.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.141592-1.40.3 (Web2C 7.5.6)
kpathsea: Running mktexfmt pdflatex.fmt
fmtutil: format directory `/var/lib/texmf/web2c' is not writable.
I can't find the format file `pdflatex.fmt'!

Running as root (in case it needs to create files)
