'nobody' probably will not work because your server runs as 'apache'
in RedHat.

Are you running with taint mode?  It looks like the file
name is not detainted until after creating it, which is
probably a bug at line 114 of have you
considered using a more recent version of Mason?

For this to work it seems like your permission should be:

chown apache:apache /etc/httpd/mason
chmod 755           /etc/httpd/mason

Does the directory /etc/httpd/mason/obj already exist, but
with permissions that cannot be read by the web server to
determine if it does exist?

Can we see output of `ls -la /etc/httpd/mason/` please.

Incidentally it might make sense to set it to compile mason
objects to files in a directory other than /etc, which is
supposed to be for configuration.  For instance, somewhere
in /var might be more appropriate.
