Why are you changing the line? If you've got to do things like pdflatex, bibtex, makeindex, pdflatex, pdflatex use the latexmk engines that TeXShop provides (although they are inactive by default --- move them from ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/Inactive/Latexmk/ up two directories to ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/ to activate them). You'll find instructions in that Latexmk directory.

Good Luck,
