Another brute force approach... duplicate the latexmk.engine file and  
give it the name latexmkx.engine. Open the engine file in TeXShop and  
add the lines

basefname=$(basename "$1" .tex)
rm "${basefname}.dvi"
rm "${basefname}.ps"

to the end of the engine file (make sure there file ends with a return).

You can also add the dvi and ps extensions to TeXShop's File->Trash  
Aux Files (Ctl-Cmd-A) command; search for Trash in TeXShop's Help.  
Then the choice is up to you at any time without changing the tex file

Good Luck,
