[OS X TeX] [pdftk] MacOS Roman -> Western ISO Latin 9

May I please raise this thread from the death.

Because there is no solution up to today. I'am using TL2008 most  
current updates installed by tlmgr.

I've created a PDF file and used this engine:

basefname="`basename "$1" .tex`"
lp -o media=a4 "${basefname}.pdf"
pdftk "${basefname}.pdf" background ~/Pictures/Watermarks/ 
bgabschrift.pdf output printfile.pdf
lp -o sides=two-sided-long-edge -o media=a4 printfile.pdf
rm printfile.pdf

I get no printouts, but the console reports:

2009-01-04 19:39:02.870 TeXShop[14643:203] *** NSTask: Task create for  
path '/Users/fv/Library/TeXShop/Engines/fvprint2.engine' failed: 8,  
"Exec format error".  Terminating temporary process.

What's wrong?

TIA and kind regards, Friedrich
