You're having in your home directory (in ~/Library/texmf) an older  
version of kvoptions.sty than that in TeXLive 2008.

The package pdftexcmds.sty, which you're using, is taken from TeXLive  
2008 and expects a recent enough version of kvoptions.sty, such as  
that in TeXLive 2008. Alas, you're having this older version in ~/ 
Library/texmf, and because ~/Library/texmf comes before anything in / 
usr/local/texlive in the search path this older version takes  

What to do: remove ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/kvoptions.sty and try  

That said, Users/~/Library is an odd path to start with. I assume it  
results from manual editing on your part, namely attempting to  
replace /Users/<your-user-name> by ~ before posting and leaving a typo
