No, the 'GUI environment' problem. See
for the detail, but basically GUI applications are not getting the
'right' path information in Yosemite, which breaks the ability to
readily run some tools. This shows up particularly with XeTeX, which
as-standard spans xdvipdfmx as a second process after the typesetting
run and so relies on the path being correct.

There are work-arounds but it's a pain: as I say, the issue is as I
understand it of Apple's making.
