[Mac OS X TeX] Custom formats (*.fmt) in TeXShop?

Is there an easy way to use custom formats (*.fmt) in TeXShop?
I have created myformat.fmt in the same directory as mytex.tex, which 


at the beginning of the document. But TeXShop still uses latex and 
ignores my custom format. This is the output of TeXShop:

### /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/tex \&latex 
 From the command line "tex mytex.tex" works, as expected.

	Any hints?


PS: I need custom formats, because it takes ages to load packages such 
as prosper and pstricks separately.
