That kind of explains why the rest didn't work!
The first trial with pdflatexmk doesn't work (latexmk gets into a run
on condition [6=infinity for latexmk]) because files are being updated
behind latexmk's back and it keeps seeing the updated files and wants
to run again. That's why I made the pst-pdfmk engine; latexmk
recursively controls all the processing steps needed.
If you really don't have the pst-pdfmk engine file look into ~/Library/
TeXShop/Engines/Inactive/Latexmk/ and move the engines there into the
Engines folder. I'm not sure why you have pdflatexmk but not the others.
You can always dowwnload the latest version of latexmk (4.08 right
now) along with all the other needed files (to be placed in ~/Library/
TeXShop/bin/ and .../Engines/) with instructions, etc., as
Latexmk408TeXShop226.zip (don't worry about the 226 part) from <http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2
