Thanx for the hint, that already works! Is there documentation about  
all this shell stuff? E.g. now  have to compile twice, because the m4/ 
pic-Compile seems to take place though .tex goes on compiling and  
therefore including the already existent (old) version - have to  
compile twice to see the actual output. What i'm looking for would be  
an option to wait for the shell command to finish... seems to me it  
doesn't wait?

As of now it looks like this:

\subsection{Passiver Tiefpaß 1. Ordnung}
%m4/pic compile
\write18{m4 /Users/tix/Desktop/CM/pgf.m4 /Users/tix/Desktop/CM/ 
libcct.m4 ./rc.m4 | dpic -g > rc.tex}
\input rc
