Sometimes it can take even more runs of ``LaTeX'' to get things right.  
I'm a big fan of latexmk. I put together some engines for TeXShop  
along with configuration (rc) files and some shell scripts. Available  
with TeXShop or you can get them as examples as  
Latexmk408TeXShop226.zip with some documentation at <http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2

I don't know if the ones that also use shell scripts are as easily  
taken over.

Good Luck,
