Was FCPX working okay until this error showed up ? if so can you recall installing anything which may contribute to this .. software or any new hardware ?
Also it would be worth a try to trash the preferences .. you can get a free tool at digitalrebellion.com .. here is the link .. http://www.digitalrebellion.com/prefman/

UPDATE - After a few program restarts, FCPX now gets past the hangup and runs fine. But the "Incompatable Audio Units" message comes up every time. I believe it may be a conflict with Novation Automap.
Question: What/where is teh AU Manager that the error message refers to?

AU Manager is a part of serveral programs such as Logic Pro - do you have Logic Pro installed ? You may need to rescan for AU plugins .. I had a quichk look thro the Novation Automap user guide and I cannot see FCPX listed as a supported product for it. You mayalso get more help on the Novation forum .. This does not seem to be anything wrong with FCPX .. more a compatability issue .

I do not have Logic installed. I have several other music programs installed (AbletonLive, Garage Band, etc.) but I can not find AU Manager anywhere on my computer. Odd that a FCP dialogue would recomend launching AU Manager.

If you don't have AU Manager, then you can manually "clean" your AU plugins (if you know which is the problem).
On your "root" drive (usually Macintosh HD) > Library > Audio > Plugins > Components
yourHomeFolder > Library > Audio > Plugins > Components
find your offending plugin and move it out of the folder.
I've seen references to Automap causing problems in general...not just with fcpx
there is also this if you want to give it a shot:
it looks like it will run a validation on your AUs -- might help you figure out what the problem is.

I looked around in the two plugin folders and did not find anything new or unusual. I tried running that AU manager program you sent, but it aparently it doesn't like Mountain Lion so I was unable to run th everify. Thanks for your help.

I checked the author's site. That software may be too old. Try this instead:
it may also have issues with ML or perhaps they haven't updated their site since ML came out... still worth a shot.

You can also use Plugin Manager in Pro Maintenance Tools to disable and validate audio plugins:
