[OS X TeX] TeXShop and Bibunits engine

Hello all,

I would like to use the package bibunits to create a document with a  
bibliography for each section of a document, and furthermore, I would  
like a TeXShop engine that handles the bibtex processing of the  
bu1.aux, bu2.aux, ... files that are produced.  On p. 4 of the  
documentation, the package author suggests a script

foreach auxfile (bu*.aux)
   echo bibtex ‘basename $auxfile .aux‘
   bibtex ‘basename $auxfile .aux‘

I created an engine with this, but when I run it, I get the following  
error message:

bibtex ‘basename bu1.aux .aux‘
bibtex: Need exactly one file argument.
Try `bibtex --help' for more information.

I also tried the alternative script that the author suggests:

foreach auxfile (bu*.aux)
   set auxfilebasename = ‘echo $auxfile | sed s/.aux//‘
   echo bibtex $auxfilebasename
   bibtex $auxfilebasename

but I get the error message:

/Volumes/Files/Library/TeXShop/Engines/BibTeX bibunits.engine: line  
3: syntax error near unexpected token `('
/Volumes/Files/Library/TeXShop/Engines/BibTeX bibunits.engine: line  
3: `foreach auxfile (bu*.aux) '

I do not know anything about shell scripting, so can someone suggest  
modifications to this script that will work?
