Yes, I've done this. But I use (predominantly) Emacs (Carbon Emacs). 
Should I do something about the flag --shell-escape in the settings of 
emacs, e.g., in .emacs, or somewhere else?

And one more question, if you would have the patience to take it up:

I can't just use the Open from the Preview menu to open files 
located in the root directories. For now, I'm doing this from a command 
line as described below. But may be there a better way? May be something 
more straightforward from emacs? Here are the options that I figured out:

$ open -a Preview /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.texlive/doc/latex/oberdiek/epstopdf.pdf

2. by texdoc from a command line, either by

$ texdoc epstopdf

from emacs: <Esc-x shell> and then from the command line in the shell's 
buffer, I issue the command <texdoc epstopdf>
