The 'set path' statement comes first, before any command is executed.  
A bit of optimisation can be to make it independent from the  
processor used in the Mac:

	set path = ($path  /usr/local/bin  /usr/local/teTeX/bin/`uname -p`- 

pdflatex needs no '--shell-escape' accept is runs itself some  
external command or script.

Invoke in Terminal 'chmod 755 fullrun.engine' (and for  
ps4pdf_Bilder.engine too).

The problem is probably that the script receives the full file name.  
It might work with:

	makeindex -c -s indexkorr.ist `basename "$1" tex`idx

'`basename "$1" tex`' converts the full path name with the file  
name's extension to the full path name without the extension "tex"  
but with the dot ".", so you just need to add "idx" for the full  
index name.

Isn't it better to leave away the ".idx" extension? If so use this:

		makeindex -c -s indexkorr.ist `basename "$1" .tex`

I think bibtex waits for a file name without extension, i.e.  
`basename "$1" .tex`. And since it's now more than once that basename  
is being used, it's worth to write:

		set fbName = `basename "$1" .tex`

and then use "$fbName" instead of `basename "$1" .tex` and "$ 
{fbName}.idx" instead of `basename "$1" tex`idx.

And the first, commented makeindex, needs an argument like pdflatex,  
i.e. "$1".
