You can use the perl-script atChange to do all the latex-stuff when 
the file is saved with Alpha. In Terminal.app you can type something 
like this:
atchange myfile.tex pdftex myfile.tex
and the file myfile.tex will typeset if you save it.
Look at http://www.lecb.ncifcrf.gov/~toms/atchange.html for atChange.
