Assuming you've installed asy already (that's another procedure) and you are using TeXShop it's pretty easy. You need only activate the ``latexmk engines'' by moving them from ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/Inactive/Latexmk/ two folders up, to ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/ (note: ~/Library/ is the Library folder in your HOME folder --- if you are using Lion you can get to it by pressing the Option Key and Clicking on Finder's Go menu) and resstarting TeXShop. To tell TeXShop that a .tex file should use the asymptotemk engine place the line
% !TEX TS-program = asymptotemk
at the top of the file. From then on simply Typeset->Typeset (Cmd-T) will automatically compile only those asymptote figures that have changed since the last compile as well as take care of multiple runs of pdflatex and biblatex and/or makeindex.
There is another Asymptote specific engine found in ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/Inactive/Asymptote/ but try the asymptotemk engine first and see if you like it.
