[OS X TeX] iTeXMac Synchronicity with AlphaX

I couldn't get iTeXMac synchronicity with Alphax to work, unfortunately.
It seems to rely (according to iTeXMac support documentation) on iTeXMac
calling a provided script called Alphax, which in turn relies on a tcl
file aecom.tcl. But the aecom.tcl file isn't in fact available from the
website listed. More germane, AlphaX (the application) has an improved and
speedier command line interface that does not rely on this; one just calls
'alphac +%l %f' where %l is the linenumber and %f the filename, and alphac
is a script provided in the AlphaX release that calls the alphaserver.  
This works very well with dvi previewers, like xdvi. This is good news for
the future of synchronicity, if not for the present.
