If you are using an engine in TeXShop and a script in Terminal why not  
just put in the full path: e.g., in the engine use

/usr/texbin/texi2pdf "$1"

and then you don't have to mess around with changing paths, etc. I was  
going to suggest you try latexmk but I see you already know about it.

Good Luck,
