Please tell us what TeX distribution you're using and how did you  
upgrade to 10.5 (Archive and Install?).

If you're using pLaTeX, then I assume you're preparing Japanese texts,  

Indeed, /Users/<your-short-name>/Library/TeXShop/bin/platex2pdf-euc has

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/teTeX/bin

and /usr/local/teTeX doesn't exist any more in MacTeX; this was used  
in gwTeX, which indeed had pTeX.
