Dear Maarten (and others),

Thank you. I tried your solution from your site, but I get the  
following from my terminal:

AireyDC:~ dairey$ /Users/dairey/Library/ShellScripts/CompileTeX-engine  
-pdflatex '/Users/dairey/Documents/Jobs/jobs_2008/U_Chicago_2008/ 
~/Documents/Jobs/jobs_2008/U_Chicago_2008 ~

/Users/dairey/Library/ShellScripts/CompileTeX-engine: line 477:  
pdflatex: command not found

My Mac Tex 2007 is otherwise correctly installed, I'm guessing,  
because TexShop compiles readily.
