Comment (by felipou):

 I just had this exact same problem when installing the "mongodb" port. The
 "_mongo" user was created with uid 505, and gid -1 (saw that with the
 command `dscacheutil -q user`). I checked the list of groups (with
 `dscacheutil -q group`) and saw that the "_mongo" group was correctly
 created with gid 505. So I just changed the gid of the _mongo user to 505
 with the command `sudo dscl . -change /Users/_mongo PrimaryGroupID -1
 505`, and it seems to have worked, I could properly run mongodb after
