By converting the de-composed UTF-8 strings of file names in HFS+ to  
the input encoding used in your TeX source, for example: iconv -f  
UTF-8-MAC -t ISO-8859-15 (iconv -f from -t to).

iconv -l shows all encodings it supports.

Around November 18 Friedrich Vosberg had a similiar problem on this  
list. Again, a few days ago, he needed help for '&' in a path name.

When you add the option '-w' to ls in Terminal you can see the file  
names written in their proper glyphs, maybe you need to set Terminal  
to use UTF-8 encoding for presentation to see this.



Without vi there is only GNU Emacs
