Would using homebrew or macports be an option?

 From http://www.rabbitmq.com/install.html#generic-unix
If the directories RABBITMQ_MNESIA_BASE and RABBITMQ_LOG_BASE do not 
exist the server will attempt to create them. The server needs write 
permission at the configured locations.

So just point those env vars to some writeable location.
