Snow Leopard 10.6.1
In all the forums and posts by apple and mac users in regards to all the reports to ignore in permissions repair, and after speaking to apple tech support, being told that ACL found but not expected.... is just a reporting problem with the OS X operating system. I hoped that this would be fixed in snow leopard, but it hasn't been.

*Always back up computer as safeguard

I solved this by using mac pilot.
The steps I took were as follows:

1)I clicked tools in the mac pilot menu
2)I clicked files and folders in the left pane window
3)Scrolled down to "wipe access control list data", and then chose Macintosh HD (which I was warned not to do)
4)Once completed, I booted from the install disc, and from the utility menu, chose reset password for Macintosh HD, and at the bottom of the box clicked Reset Home Directory Permissions and ACLs.
5)I then reinstalled 10.6.1 update
-Upon completion and restarting the computer, I then ran permission repairs in disk utility, and all the ACL found but not expected messages were gone, leaving only the 2 "Suid file warnings" that kept coming up!

ACL found but not expected on "private/var/db/launchd.db/com.apple.launchd"
Repaired "private/var/db/launchd.db/com.apple.launchd"
ACL found but not expected on "private/var/yp/binding"

I hope this has been of help to all with the ACL messages frustrating them

You could also just use ACLr8, a command-line tool that clears all unexpected ACL for you.
