Can it be that no other AUX file was created? Do you your source  
"enabled" to include all chapters? You can make the script show all  
AUX files with

	ls -l bu*.aux
	foreach auxfile (bu*.aux)
	  set afile = "`basename $auxfile .aux`"
	  echo bibtex $afile
	  bibtex "$afile"

or even

	ls -l *.aux
	foreach auxfile (bu*.aux)
	  set afile = "`basename $auxfile .aux`"
	  echo bibtex $afile
	  bibtex "$afile"

Is there some guarantee that all BibTeX relevant AUX files will  
follow the pattern "bu*.aux?"

Another remark, now that I am awake: the double quotes are not  
necessary – because the foreach loop will fail: *it* already will  
separate 'a file.aux' into 'a' and 'file.aux' so that the variable  
$afile will never receive the complete file name. A more complicated  
script can be written ...

Sorry, I can't deal with these details! To see what happens with all  
your LaTeX and auxiliary files it might help to open the folder in  
Finder and check what changes after a LaTeX or engine file run (you  
could combine both in one engine, I think) happen. For this purpose  
you can make Finder sort for date, or file type, if Finder could  
learn to distinguish between the different TeX related file name  
extensions. In Terminal you could use 'ls -lt' to sort the ls output  
for date.



We are usually convinced more easily by reasons we have found  
ourselves than by those which have occurred to others.
