My gaffe.  I post my remedy here, so others do not make the same mistake I did.

teTex comes with musixflx; I didn't know that, so I went and got musixflx,
and put it in my home directory (in my path).  When I ran musixflx on the
command line, I was running the one in my home dir; TeXShop doesn't use my
path, though -- so it found musixflx in
/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/ when I ran it from inside
TeXShop.  I didn't realize this; since I didn't think teTex included musixflx,
I figured TeXShop was savvy to my path and was finding the copy in my home dir.

So the blank console I got when I tried to run my musixtex.pl script was simply
the result of TeXShop not being able to find my script!  (Perhaps it ought to
complain more loudly?)  I moved my musixtex.pl script to
/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current/  and everything works fine
