Nope, the master's at /etc/crontab which is copied over to 
/var/cron/tabs/root by running
crontab -u root /etc/crontab. The line in question in /etc/crontab looks 
like this:

#minute hour    mday    month   wday    who     command
*/5     *       *       *       *       root    /usr/libexec/atrun

Now, from syslog I can tell it copies the username to the command line 
as well. So, no
wonder it can't find root, it's not a command!

Any ideas as to how it is supposed to run normally?
