[OS X TeX] Update to Latexmk

The latexmk program has been updated to version 4.00e.

The index package writes information to the log file in a different  
format from the makeidx, multind, etc., packages and previous versions  
of latexmk would fail to recognize that the normal idx file was being  
created. This is corrected with version 4.00e.

In addition, I've updated the rc files included in the latexmk  
packaging for TeXShop so they will work better with file names that  
have spaces.

There are two versions of the packaging; Latexmk400eTeXShop.zip and  
Latexmk400eTeXShop218.zip available at <http://homepage.mac.com/ 
herbs2>. The only difference is that the second version is set up to  
generate the .synctex.gz file, with MacTeX-2008, that can be used  
for .tex<->.pdf synchronization with TeXShop 2.18. That version can be  
used by all versions of TeXShop without using synctex synchronization  
and you get a minor warning message about an option that isn't  
understood if you use it with MacTeX-2007 or earlier. My suggestion is  
to use the updated 2.18 version in all cases.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
