[OS X TeX] epstopdf automatic updates to pdf

    I am currently using TexShop with Gerben Wierda's teTex distribution 
on two computers, an ibook and a G5 PowerMac, both running OS X 10.4. 
The installation on the ibook does something that I find very 
convenient, but I can't figure out how to do it on the other installation.

I regularly use pdfLaTeX and epstopdf. On the ibook, whenever an eps 
file is updated (usually by Adobe Illustrator) and the LaTeX file is run 
through pdfLaTeX, the pdf file is automatically updated as well.  On the 
other installation, however, the old pdf must be manually removed in 
order to create a new version.

I suspect that there must an option that needs to be set somewhere or a 
file that needs to be updated in order to get the automatic updating to 
work.  But, I haven't been able to figure it out.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
