Sorry for the late reply, but here's the error:

macbookpro:ge root# tar -zxf
doc/LICENSE: Can't remove already-existing dir: Directory not empty
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

I'm just getting around to installing 6.2u5 under Snow Leopard.  I'm
also getting this when running the installer GUI, but I seemed to have
the same issue with 6.2u4 courtesy binaries:
Write out database with 1 new entries
Data Base Updated
chown: default: Invalid argument
mkdir -p /Library/StartupItems/SGE.p6444
   starting sge_qmaster
sge_qmaster daemon didn't start. Please check your
autoinstall configuration file! Installation failed!

Looks like a problem with the chown command on the /opt/ge/default
directory.  I'll check the inst scripts to see if I can correct it.
