comment Polish letters 'ą' and 'ę' encoding
This has nothing to do with polski.sty, which uses \k normally. The problem is that the OP probably used \def instead of \newcommand and overwrote the definition of \k. (Or as Ulrike just said, somewhere within a \foreach loop.)

It would also be helpful if you showed a complete minimal working example of your problem rather than just fragments. (e.g. it's important to know what document class you are using, and what package you are using for bibliography support: natbib, biblatex?

The @{} specification in tabular works with any table; it's not specific to booktabs.

That's not the log from the minimal document. If you want to figure this out, you're going to have to add packages one by one back into the minimal document to see if one of them is causing the problem.

If you compile a document with just those packages and the two characters 'ą' and 'ę', does it not work? Do you get any warnings in the log? If so, report them back here.

You need to have a font that supports them too. Try \usepackage{lmodern}.

comment Checkboxes in PDF forms don't show up in OS X
@mike I don't think we've established that it's a TL problem as opposed to a Lion problem. Since your sample document (compiled with TL 2011 on Lion) displays correctly for me using 10.6.8, I don't think this is a completely a TL problem.

comment Strange error after upgrading to MacTeX 2011 (TeXLive)
Without more info, this might be hard to test. Did you delete your previous TeXLive distribution? If not, the simplest way to diagnose things would be to switch back to the previous distribution (using the TeX Distribution Control Panel) and compile the document again. If you put \listfiles at the beginning and compare the logs of both documents you might find out whether one of the dependent packages has changed. The \rc@... macros are defined by the refcount package which was last updated Dec 2010.

The checkbox appears in your sample document and in my version of this document I compiled it. It appears correctly in both Preview and Adobe Reader. I'm running 10.6.8, so maybe this is a Lion-specific problem.
